Cannot connect to terminal server using remote desktop connection using either local ip or external ip address.

the server needed a restart this morning following windows updates. since then we cannot connect remotely to the server.

can ping other ip addresses of servers on the network
logon script (from PDC) has run attaching our network drives

so def on the network. have rebooted server. checked regedit and port no still correct. Saw one post that sometimes windows firewall can block a port following windows updates. Windows firewall is currently set to off

the only other update installed recently is Windows Management Framework Core. Do I need this? Can it be uninstalled?

Reading about I see it is not entirely supported for older OS versions such as windows 2003.

Please advise

It turns out our ISP changed the ip address but the notification never got through. Have updated router and all works ok
