Terminal Services not working on a member server in an SBS 2003 domain...


I have an SBS 2003 domain with a second windows server 2003 server running as a member server.  Problem is I cannot connect to the terminal server on the server 2003 machine.  I am using it only for remote administration.  Terminal services works fine on the SBS machine, but not on the server 2003 machine.

I have checked the enable remote desktop on this server box, the ICF firewall is disabled, the terminal services service is running  and I have added the domain admins group to the local security group remote desktop users.  Yet still I get the error the client could not connect  to the remote computer.  When I try to telnet into the machine on port 3389 I cannot connect, so I assume that somehting is blocking it, but the two machines are on the same LAN and both have there firewall disabled.  I have tried doing a repair install on this server and the problem is still around!!

Anyone have any ideas?!?

If you haven't tried this, try connecting via IP address instead of computer name in the remote desktop client.  If it works, then there is a DNS problem.
