metasploit – Nothing will connect to my meterpreter reverse tcp listener

when opening on my pc it will show a session has connected, when opened on an RDP nothing happens
is it because of the RDP? because the only way i can test it right now on a different network is via RDP. i’ve tried setting up port forwarding to see if that was a problem, but still no sessions.
i’m using the windows metasploit framework.
