SBS 2011 Client Remote Workplace not connecting

When connecting to the servers remote workplace it allows you to log into the https website. But once you try to connect to a computer it downloads the RDP but while attempting to connect it times out and fails. I have tried making an administrator account and tried to connect to a client machine (Allowed my login on their workstation from the remote tab) and have tried my own server with no success. Is there another port i need to open? Thanks!

Have you run the internet connection wizard and fix my network, SBS loves the wizards.

In the SBS console did you allow the user access?

SBS Console / Network / Computers / right click computer / User access / choose a user and grant them 'local administrator' under 'Access Level'

Thanks for the many responses WORKS! All the ports you asked for are open and have no blocks. We tried the wizard and got nothing on it. And i just tried the suggestion of Local Admin Level and it did not work.

I have made a test account with the same basic standard user access as other users and eve with the changes you suggested nothing worked =/ Any other ideas?

Does it matter? I have tried on Internet Explorer 10 and 11 and google chrome, all with the same time out when connecting to the client machine

Please check the network card bindings on the server.
In Advanced, make sure your Network adapter is in first position.
Its a long shot but worth trying.

There's known issues with IE 10 and 11 if it was pushed to all workstations could be an issue, something to consider but probably wouldn't have the issue with Chrome...maybe.

Any updates to .NET recently?

I would give your router a hard reset, pull power count to 5 or reset it from the portal. It's a single point of failure and possible one of the rules is not working / forwarding correctly. As well the switch since it's a single point of failure.

downloads the RDP but while attempting to connect it times out and fails
please provide a screenshot of the exact error message.

I will try to hard reset everything in about an hour. And there is no error message, it just finally stops trying to connect and says it cannot connect.Error Message While Connecting

I figured out what was causing the issue. Although in my IIS the SSL certificate was correct, when i reinstalled it again the remote began to work. The self assign appears to have not worked completely. Thanks for the help guys!
