RDP to SBS2003 not listening on port 3389
Posted on 2011-04-28
A HP Proliant ML350 server running SBS2003 SP2 I have just inherited is not listening on port 3389.
It is operating as file/print/dns/dhcp/email server for a small businnes.
Networking appears to be ok, there are some WMI problems however.
netstat -an | find "3389" finds only
UDP 0.0.0.0:33891 *:*
netstat -an | find "LISTENING" shows many ports listening
Terminal services service is started (automatic)
regedit shows the HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\WinStations\RDP-Tcp\PortNumber value to be 3389
processxp.exe shows the process svchost.exe for the terminal services service but under the TCPIP tab nothing is listed.
The only remote access I have is with VNC, the office is ~1hr drive and the server cannot be restarted without someone being there to press F1 for a BIOS error.
What should my next steps be to figure this out ?
