Win2008 R2 Remote Desktop only allows Domain Admin to log in.

I have implemented Windows Server 2008 R2 and I am trying to allow a remote user of mine to get in.  I have the licensing server setup, everything is fine there.   I can remote into the server using the Domain Administrator "administrator" account but thats it.   I have tried using another account that I even elevated to Domain Admin, I have made sure the account is not denied in Active Directory, and still nothing.  

Any ideas?  Everything is setup pretty much out of the box.

The local administrator account is allowed to RDP by default.  You need to specify additional accounts manually.  To do this, right click Computer, Properties, Remote Settings, and Select Users.  Add the user account(s) that need to be allowd to RDP into this server here.

I got it figured out.  Apparently you have to have the new RD Gateway setup first.  Wow, they really made doing stuff in 2008 a lot more confusing and difficult in my opinion.  It was such a piece of cake in 2003.

Just installed one recently, had AD security group called TS users, granted access in all area's but i missed local security policy under administrative tools. Find the allow login via terminal services and grant the security group permission.
It was the same in 2003 server as well.

Gonna go ahead and close this out and split points.  What you both stated are 100% true though my problem like I said lied within the RD Gateway.  Thanks again for the responses.
