Windows 8 Basic can not connect to RDP on Terminal Server 2003

We are running Windows 2003 Terminal Server
We have Thin clients with an old nt system, some windows xp, windows7, MAC and Linux.
They can all connect to our Terminal Server

The only exeption  is Windows 8. It can not
When trying to connect I get the attached error message
 I am trying to replicate the fault from my own Windows 8 Enteprise and I can not.
They all have Windows 8 (basic)

My question is so if there is something with Windows 8 Basic that will not allow it to connect via RDP to a Windows 2003 Terminal Server?

Check the Firewall on the Windoze 8 boxes. If necessary temporarily turn it off.

Hello,

Windows 8 supports RDP connections from Windows 2003 or earlier. To achieve this you need to allow connections from computers running any version of RDP client. There's an according setting in the system settings of your Windows 8 machine (Desktop Control Panel, at the place where remote access is being turned on).

Thanks Aditya

Please be clear on this: "I am trying to replicate the fault from my own Windows 8 Enteprise and I can not" - you can not... what? You cannot replicate the problem, so it does work from 8 enterprise? Or are you saying that it does not work, neither from 8 "basic", nor from 8 enterprise?

For me, connections with 8/8.1 pro and enterprise do work to 2003 without issues. 8 "basic" I haven't tried.

Thanks for all reply
I will get them to ping test on LAn and come back to you
When I say "in can not replicate the fault", means it works for me from my Windows 8 Enterprise.
I will also get them to check the RDP client version

Ping and RDP are in no direct connection. You should see whether port 3389 can be reached.
telnet servername 3389
is the command. The telnet.exe needs to be installed as a windows feature.
The rdp client version of 8 is alright. The server's client version does not matter as it's not being used here.

That solved it? You mean, you installed that Client Portion on the Server and now you can use win8 to connect to it? I would be surprised.
