I setup terminal server and I typed in our server IP address in RDP the following way:

192.168.254.9/console

The error I get is that it can't find the computer.

Where should I try troubleshooting

Go back to server and run netstat -a
See if port 3389 is listening. You can physically access this server, right?

Use the below command to access the server with the specific port.

mstsc /v 192.168.254.9:5540 /admin.

Note: /admin or /console is depend upon the version.To know which option is supported, from command prompt run mstsc /? which will give the option it support.

You can just type the same command in the RDP client.

192.168.254.9:5540 /admin

I erred in my comment.  It looks like it is port 3389 and it does not appear to be listening.  What should I do to turn it on?

Run the netstat -ao and get the PID for the 3389 port .

Run the tasklist /svc and check what service is running for the PID.Check if the PID is associated with the terminal service, if not terminal service may be assinged for diffenert port.

To check and change the default port of the Terminal service
