2003 Server SP2. I have been able to connect remotely to server without any problems. Restarted server today and can not connect via RDP. Only thing I did differently was to restart without installing the updates that had been downloaded. The server is up and I can ping it, access shares and administrative shares, remotely connect to the registry and services. Windows Firewall is not running. I have not tried doing a restart from the command line because I am concerned that a bigger issue may come up and server is 80 miles away.

its a known issue, particularly when dealing with updates, that you need to reboot a terminal server twice

I've been reading that in a few posts but...
1. Not running Terminal Services on this box
2. Never have had this issue before, and have done multiple updates
3. Did not install updates that had been downloaded this time.
It may be that the only answer is to restart the server, but I will not be able to do that until Friday when I am physically at the site.

doesnt matter if its term serv or not, any RDP traffic is simply dropped....

My guess is you are going to have to reboot unfortunately, i have seen this heaps of times

OK thanks. I'll have to wait until Friday, but will award you the points then if the restart works.

It was a simple restart that fixed it. Strange that all my local systems worked fine, but the ones I had to drive to all exhibited this issue.   ;-(
