Something happened overnight last night, that caused our terminal server (2008) to stop accepting terminal connections. I can't even ping after establishing a VPN connection. But i can ping the 2003 DC.
I can however ping the Terminal Server from the DC. But thur the VPN no terminal services connection and no ping response. I reinstalled terminal services, disabled and enabled firewall, all IP settings look good.

    Are you sure the server do not have it's "response to ping from outside" disabled?

    It may have been a DNS issue, I rebooted the DC and now I'm able to communicate to Terminal Server
