Terminal server keeps ending the connection

Hello.

We are trying to setup a terminal server in windows 2000 but for some reason everytime we try to connect to it we get the error message "The Terminal server has ended the connection".   We have reinstalled it twice, we do not have any firewalls blocking the ports that it requires and other terminal servers in the domain work fine.  We have tried both the Terminal services client in Windows 2000 and the Windows XP remote desktop client.  What other things can I try?

regards.

Hi euskills,

Is the terminal services service running on the target server? start> progs> admin tools > services > terminal services...?

Hope This helps

On the server, try to see if anything odds in event viewer. Someone has problem with licensing before, or event with a graphic driver (funny, hah?). Then post the result here and we will try to figure out some things.

Thanks for the quick response.  Under that registry key we only have;

Certificate
fInternetConnector
UseLicenseServer

and not

# X509 Certificate
# X509 Certificate ID

As the kb article states.   I will delete the Certificate value and restart the server to see if that helps.

Regards.
