try using the IP address of the target machine instead of the DNS name in the connection dialog. Are you on an active directory domain?

when you run the terminal service client, are you using the /console switch or selecting some option in the client to connect to the console session? You don't need to connect to the console session. If you are logged into the console it should re-direct your user session to the RDP session when you login to the RDP session.
