Hi experts.

We have a Windows 2003 Server Terminal Server in application mode. Terminal Server services are up and running but port 3389 is not listening. We tried reinstall this role, but port continues not to listen.

There are no errrors on event viewer related to Terminal Server. We tried to uncheck, reboot and check the remote administration check on the system properties. We tried to re-create the listener on Terminal Server configuration console ... but nothing works.

Any answer will be apprecied.

Are you certain you don't have a firewall on the system blocking that port?

Try to do the following:

 - Download and install devcon.exe from Microsoft. Its a command line device manager tool.
 - Run devcon.exe which will extract it.
 - Open a cmd prompt
 - Navigate to the i386 folder devcon made.
 - Type
      devcon.exe -r install %windir%\inf\machine.inf root\rdpdr
      Wait until it completes.
      Thats it, all done

Hi leew, thanks for your reply but a firewall can block and incoming or outgoing connection, but not the bind of a socket to an interface.

Hi si_shamil, thanks for your reply. I've tried your suggestion but don't work, but I've discovered the "remote desktop" unchecked on system properties. My coworker will try tomorrow to check it again, and will see what happen.

Thanks.
