RDP Connection error

When I try to RDP into a remote server from our terminal server I get a network error and cannot connect.  But i can RDP into another pc on that lan and then RDP into the server.  This is very strange.

Hi,

I would verify the subnet mask settings on this particular pc.  Additionally, make sure all is well in DNS and in firewall settings of any kind.

make sure that forwarding is enabled on  the routers involved for the listening port of the client as well as port 3389

It cannot have anything to do with the routers becuase i can RDP into another server on the same lan.  Something with the client is causing a network error

It could be that the firewall/router is configured to only allow RDP connections to one server, this is quite common.

actually, not configuring forwarding will cause same problem. you need to configure the second client on a different listening port as well as forwarding on the router.

Nat C's suggestion of possible firewall is good advise as well.
