I recently had to reinstal my network adapter and since then I have lost RDP access to my server.

I tried telnet to port 3389 and it wont connect

ran netstat and it is not listening on 3389

There is no firewall to block the connection. I have checked that the terminal server service is running fine and that RDP is enabled in remote settings for administrators.

Could anyone please help with this as I need to get this running asap
