I have a windows NT workstation sp4 at a remote site using a router to router vpn connection using RDP to connect to one of two terminal servers (Server1 and Server2). There are three workstations at this remote site and only one is having this problem. When rdp tries to make the connect the following error occurs "the client could not establish a connection to the remote computer". This computer has been using rdp for over a year to make this conneciton. Server2 event log has the following error "event id: 1004". Server 2 does not have Terminal Server Licenseing installed but Server1 does, it is not activated on Server1 or server2. When I connect my laptop to the network and rdp from the home office where the servers are I connect to server2 with no problem.
1. Does Server1 terminal server licenseing have to be activated, it is not at this time?
2. Microsoft Article http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=827355
suggest that I load a patch, would you agree?
Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
