It's a Dell workstation, brand new, with Windows XP Pro SP3. We've enabled remote desktop and it's not working, but moreover when you try to connect to it you don't get the normal error, it just does nothing. The RDP client just flashes back the prompt asking for the computer name/IP.
We've turned off the firewall, make sure there was no other "trial" software that may be blocking it.
Verified that terminal services was running under "services.msc".
Verified it's listening for RDP connections via "netstat -a"
I even changed the listening port to see if that helped and it did nothing. I did some googling and found this page - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/951608
which describes how to add something that SP3 took out by default, that didn't help either.
I'm kind of at a lose here, I have no clue what to do next. From all accounts the computer is set up right and listening for RDP connections, and when you try to connect to it you don't get the normal error as if remote desktop wasn't enabled. I even double checked this by turning off remote desktop and trying to RDP to it, I get the normal error. Turn it back on and no error, but also no remote desktop.
Any help is appreciated.
