okay, there could be two separate issues here, with networking?

1. can you ping the VM IP Address ?

2. can you telnet to the IP Address

e.g.

telnet <ip address> 3389

IP Address of the VM ?

Connecting To servername..Could not open connection to the host, on port 3339: Connect failed

C:\>telnet servername 23
Connecting To servername..Could not open connection to the host, on port 23: Connect failed

When try to check firewall got an error attached screenshot of the same.

Okay, is RDP enabled on the VM ?

Because 3389 is not responding to a TCP connection, it indicates RDP is not listening on the VM or IP Address you are using is incorrect ?
