If you run netstat -a -b on the server does it show port 3389 is open?
I'm guessing it does if you can telnet to it.
I don't know what else it could be unless there's a firewall or router blocking it.

I think that's normal, mine's the same way.
I don't know of anything else that would cause this problem, sorry.

Could be something wrong in the registry, I have an XP system that does the same thing after resetting the registry permissions.  Use VNC
