Terminal and Licensing Server are instaled on same server and Server does listen to Port 135 and also replies to port 135 via telnet.

On the event viewer i did not see any error messages, Just infomation l Messegaes.

and that's where the problem is but i do not know how tk make the server listen to port 3389

Do you have ISA installed, it you are listening externally it could be preventing listening on that port.

Also try changing the terminal server port to see if you have any luck, refer here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/187623

Lastly do you get any information from Terminal Server Manager, does it show the server as being online, activated, etc?

Have found one Event ID that may assist
Event ID: 54 Source: :rdpdr
Description :
============
The description for Event ID ( 54 ) in Source ( rdpdr ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: \Device\RdpDrDvMgr.
============
Thansk for your assistance so far...

I would asssist you to check.

1)No config in server for listening RDP port is required.
2)Check whether RDP port is blocked in the firewall.
3)Do u have any terminal servers in the same site as the problamatic server resides.Check whether u r abe to RDP to that server.
4)GOto terminal service configurations
RIght Click RDP and check whether RDP connections is disabed.
