I'm having a problem enabling RDC on my w2k3 server...

Hey all.

I never had this problem before, but then again, I haven't installed w2k3 in a year or so.  I cannot remote desktop into my w2k3 server.  I've installed IIS and anything remotely connected with Remote Desktop Connection, but I still cannot RDC in.  The server is a workgroup, and no AD installed.  Any step-by-step help to enable this would be appreciated.

I *can* ping the server just fine.  I *can* RDC to other servers on my network...

Because I need to get this up asap (have programmers that need 'trimmed' databases that will fit in MSDE and I cannot move the files to the server (and SQL Server) until I can connect, I'll offer 400 pts.

Do you get any error(s)?

From the server, click Start->Programs->Administrative Tools->Terminal Services Configuration
and check the configuration there...check permissions, and logon settings, and the remote control tabs
