Cannot connect to an SBS 2003 serever

I monitor several SBS 2003 and 2008 servers and cannot get into one of the 2003 severs this afternoon by RDP on port 3389.

It's not their firewall as I can connect to other PCs on their network and ping the server by name and IP and all the server's network shares are available, but not reach it by MSTSC locally or remotely.

I can open the firewall and see that 3389 is pointing to the server. If it was a PC I'd be looking at the firewall was pointing to the PCs port and Remote was open, but I thought these  were default settings on SBS 2003.

Any ideas of a workaround to avoid a trip to their office?

Thanks.

have you tried RDP from another workstation once on the network. If you're using computer name try IP, could be a DNS issue.
