I have installed Remote Desktop on a DC for the moment but in next school holidays I will seperate them.
However with windows 2008 and 2003 this has been working like a sharm last 10 years so unless 2012 makes this senario worse i dont think that is the issue here

See attached.
Installed the remote access tools
All we use is to connect to remote desktop like we have done all the way since 2003.
IT worked well for a week
I have not activated the lisesce but have 103 days left. I know when i activate the lisence server, i will get issue with older version of RDP on so thats why its not activated jet as I have no solution on this

THen yesterday I did a reboot due to some internet issue and now I can not connect to remote desktop,
It just says:
The Compunter can't connect to the remote computer
Try connecting aain, if the problem continues, contact the owner of remote computer or your network administrator.

I do not even get to the logon box

I have also right clicked "My Computer" --> Properties --> Advanced System ->Remote.
Remote Desktop option to allow or dont allow is greyed out,but its marked on "Allow"
I have taken away the tick of using "Network Level Authentication" as this causes the older client not to work

Any idea where to start looking for the problem?
