Remote Desktop Windows 2003 not functioning
Posted on 2009-02-18
I am unable to open a remote desktop connection to a windows 2003 server. I am trying to connect with an administrator account. It is the same account I use to log in locally to the server.
On the windows 2003 server, the firewall is disabled (service stopped) and remote desktop is enabled in the Remote tab of the System Properties. I have also checked to
make sure RDP was on listening on port 3389 by using netstat.
On the server, I can remote connect to another win2003 server. But if I try to connect to myself, it asks for my credentials and I then I see the color bar on the Remote Desktop Connection window scroll for a second and then stop. The same thing happens when trying to connect using a XP client. I have tried using both the server's host name and ip address.
Thanks for your help!
