Heyas,

One of the PC on the network can't connect to the Windows DC it can ping with no issues, but when I try telnet through to it on the port 389 the PC is rejected. This is the only PC on the network that is doing this I have tried rejoining it to the domain with no success.

Any other ideas, bare in the mind I am a novice with AD.

can you please if PC is able to telnet itself on any well known port ?
For example, TCP 135, 445
If not,
Please disable firewall and antivirus software if any to check if installed antivirus is blocking him from communicating with DC ?
Also check how many network cards does this PC has ?
If you found multiple, then please disable all unnecessary cards and check ?

Heyas,

Done all of these, anything on the DC I should check.

Nothing again, update I can't access the PC itself via telnet from the DC. Does this provide any further insight?

You need to check if PC is responding to telnet protocol
Please logon to affected PC and open up command prompt and try "telnet ownIP 135"
If its unable to telnet itself, then there might be your problem root cause.
If this is win7 machine then you may need to install telnet feature first.
Hope that helps
Thanks
