Hi I am trying to remote into my Server 2003 machine and normally I have no issues; however, today I am trying to and all I am getting is a black screen when I remote into it. I have tried numerous computers running windows 7, windows xp, and server 03 machines to try to remote into this machine and its the same deal so I am guessing it is something on the server side. If anybody has any insight on this it would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks

Do you have another server? I would remote in to another server, go to the terminal services manager, connect to the server that you cannot remote into and reset all the connections to that server. Logout and then try to reconnect to the server you are having problems with.
