Yesterday remote desktop was working but to day it has stopped, we ahd a power failure thsi morning and both servers shut down unexpectedly.

 The RDP problem was discovered as I could nto RDP from home throguh the router.
To elimante router problems I tried to rdp internally within the office.

I have a Windows 2003R2 server with SP1.  
I alos have a second windows 2003 R2 server with excahnge 2007 on and now i cant remote desktop to either typing their IP addresses yet I can ping them.  Email/excahnge is working and webmail is still working (port 80 and 443 redirects by the router) domain name office.domain.com so the external domain is OK.

I  have been searching the internet but cannot find any thing relevant or toher than the basic steps check Ip address etc.

I think it may be a red herring as the problem existed before but I also get a WMi error .. needed to close on the main server, but this has been here before.

There does not appear to be anythign in the evnet log that is relevant.

The terminal server service is running.

Any extra pointers or a solutionw oudl help.
