intermittent RDP connection problem

Hi - i have a Windows 7 machine, that i connect to a Windows Vista Ultimate machine via RDP. it seems every day it connects when it wants to, and then doesnt later on the same day. For example, this morning i was able to successfully connect, and now i cant. It just hangs on "initiating remote connection", and then just dies giving the attached error - i have port 3389 forwarded on the router, remote access enabled on the vista machine, and made sure the port was opened in windows firewall. the internal IP address is static as well, and the port forwarding is configured for that IP correctly. I'm just wondering if theres something else i need to check or do - obviously its connecting because DO connect sometimes.Also, when i started NOT being able to connect, i created a logmein account and set it up on that machine - cant find anything different, even rebooted. still cant connect - any advice would be helpful.

Better check the network connection status first. If PING is allowed, PING the remote server and see the connection status.

Also check another server on the same subnet to determine if it is a host specific issue.
