W2K3 R2 x64 with all updates applied.

Remote desktop stopped working on this system for seemingly no apparent reason (no updates or changes were applied).

Windows Firewall is off
Remote desktop is enabled
Terminal Services is running

When I try to a telnet 3389 it fails:

Connection To not open connection to the host, on port 3389: connect failed

Even when I try to do a 'telnet 3389' it fails.

Any ideas?
