Can the client connect to the machine anyway by name, eg. map to a share on the machine? Does the connection work by IP address? Do you have the correct DNS entries on your client.

The most common reason why this occur is because you have forgotten to
allow users to logon remotly. Go in your user's properties in your domain users and computers utility on your server, and check out the tabs about terminal services, and anything related to login remotly.

One possibility may be that you have a different service pack on the server to that on the client.  There were changes made to the TS Cli between some Service pack.  Please make sure that you have the same service packs installed.  If this is not the case have you looked at the local computer policy on the terminal server and made sure you allow users to TS in?

Hi,

Also make sure that terminal services is actually up and running on the server and that the connection is ok - I know this might sound daft but you'd be surprised!
