i have a windows sbs 2003 domain in which i can not rdp into any of the client computers. i can rdp into the server fine. if i try to remote into one of the clients, when i hit connect the RDP windows goes gray for less then one second then right back to the rdp screen, i dont even get to the log on screen. no timeout message or error message or anything just will not connect.

i have turned off the windows firewall.

i am stumped here

You have to configure the clients to allow RDP connection.  Right click on My computer and go to Properties-->Remote--> allow RDP

See if that helps

This is a shot in the dark but I've heard of it a couple of times.  Try updating the video drivers on the clients.  I hear Nvidea can cause this problem and leave you no error message.

Did you apply what I suggested? This remedies the dll failure as this error is generated by not having enough memory space to load video and printers.
