cannot reach my xp workstation with Terminal Services

Last Modified: 2013-11-21
I cannot reach my xp pro workstation using terminal services even though I allowed "remote desktop" (see attachment) and my user has permission to access. the terminal services service is started although I cannot start and stop it (it's greyed out. my user is an administrator on our win2003 domain). when I try to connect using terminal services it doesn't show a login window or anything as if the service doesn't respond. my workstation is pingable from other computers in the network.
Thanks in advance.
