Using RDP on Windows Web Server 2008 SP3

I want to use remote desktop for hosting on my  Windows Web Server 2008 SP3.

I have RDP setup in my firewall.
I went to the Windows Firewall Exceptions and enabled both the Remote Desktop and Remote Administration.

But when I connect from my local computer via RDP it says remote desktop can't connect.

What might I be missing?

In my old notes it says I had changed ports. Where do I find where those ports are setup? I added the port for rdp and udp via the windows firewall. But I don't know if I need it.

Is there a RDP application on the server where I set it up?

thanks.

Try to ping the Server from your local computer & check whether you are getting reply from server or not. If so then verify whether remote desktop is enabled or not.

Check the registry entry

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\TerminalServer\WinStations\RDP-Tcp\PortNumber

port
to connect to this port use computername:3389  

Change 3389 to t he listening port
This will have to be OPENED on the Web Server firewall
create a new rule and use the port you assigned in the registry for tcp and udp

Somehow, my changes broke one of my IP addresses, so I've decided not to do the RDP right now. Super busy and I can't break anything else. So I'll end this and score it based on the amount of input.

thanks!
