First time posting...I cannot  connect to the 2003 Terminal server after a malwarebytes and Vipre scan. All the remote services are running. I disabled RDP-Tcp rebooted then enabled again. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I figured it out. For some reason, out of the three 2003 Terminal Servers...if I enable this particular Server's windows firewall it does not allow anyone to remote into it. ???

When you did the scan did it find anything that needed to be removed ?

If firewall is the issue, just need to make sure port 3389 is open, under server 2003 I think there is a tick box to allow remote desktop services
