Last Modified: 2013-01-08
Up until a week or so ago, I was able to RDP into my windows 2008 server for administration, now I cant.
if I try & connect via telnet it wont connect. There are no applications or processes using ports 3389 (see attached). Server has been restarted numerous times nothing changes.
Looked at KB2667402 & KB2621440 but both no valid for this system. Turned firewall off no difference....HELLLLLLLLLLLLLPPPPPPP

    Is "Remote Desktop Services" service running? If not, try starting it manually and check Event log for errors
