I have the terminal server on my SBS 2003 box set for administration mode. I can ping the address however for some reason am unable to connect using mstsc. When connecting I get a message that "The client could not connect to the remote computer. Remote connections might not be enabled...." I checked to make sure there is no firewall however still no success. I am unsure what is going on.

Couple of things to check,have you enable RRAS, if you have installed it, you still have to enable the service.

if you have firewall, you should open up port 3389 for the remote desktop.

Hope that is clear enough for you.

cheers
