I have a Windows 2008 32Bit Terminal Server that has been running for over a year with no hitches.

All of the sudden clients can not connect. Telnet to the server on 3389 fails. Telnet to 3389 locally from the server itself fails.

Running qwinsta responds:
 SESSIONNAME       USERNAME                 ID  STATE   TYPE        DEVICE
 services                                    0  Disc
>console           NetAdminUser                 1  Active

All services are running, RDP Connection is enabled, I deleted the Connection and recreated it. Still not able to connect with RDP client or telnet on 3389.

Anyone have any ideas?
