Cannot connect to RDP

Ok this one is weird. I setup a new terminal server on Server 2008. We have 3 total, all VM's under hyperV. The other 2 are working fine, however this one is behaving very odd. From my station I can connect to it using the /admin and also a second regular RDP using a normal domain user. In TS manager I see both connections all seems well. Can also ping just fine.

Now when I go to a different workstation, I cannot connect to the server at all. Nor can I ping it. My gut instinct is a firewall issue, so the first thing I did was go into advanced firewall, and disable all 3 profiles (domain, private,public). Still can't ping or connect, but I can just fine from mine. No AV/Firewall software on the server or clients that I'm testing from.

The VM's are  using the same network team, and the same network settings (less different IP of course).

Anythoughts?

DOH, was the subnet mask. We recently when to a 255.255.254.0 and I set  this to 255.255.255.0 by habit. My PC is static in the first subnet, the others are not, thus the failed communication.
