Can you still double check the firewall is really off, and not another firewall software product is running. You ping IP or hostname?

check firewall service status
also for RDP check if remote connection is allowed for that server
as Kimputer asked - did you try ping by IP and hostname? The same result?
can you ping from the server other macbine in the LAN (e.g. the machine you are trying to connect from?)
