Cannot access TS on 1 computer

Hi today something very stranged happened a person was working on Terminal Server and suddenly it disconnected him, when I try to reconnect to the server it gives me the timeout message so I started checking if the machine had lan, I can ping the server and even see the shared folders, next thing I did was to check the licence and yes it is there and it is valid. Although this server has about 25 peoples and all of them can close session and recconect to the TS fine.

Can anyone help me?

The clients machine is win98, and I checked the log on the server and there was nothing about the disconection.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

So, the next question should be what are you running your TS server on?  2003 Server?

You might try reinstalling the TS Client on your workstation too..

Your first problem is the Client is Win98. My solution to my clients with this problem would be to either reformat their machine installing XP or dump the machine and get a new one. No sense wasting time with this. Time is money. Windows 98 networking is always flakey at best.
