SBS2003 domain. Cannot terminal service onto any PC.

One of our clients has a SBS2003 r2 server. Whenever I try to RDP or Terminal service into any of the workstations from the server it will not let me. it just says cannot connect. is there a setting in group Policy that I can change to make this possible?

Need some more info here.  What OS are the clients running?  Also, I'm assuming you are using the Windows firewall since this is a domain environment, do you have firewall exceptions set either via the default domain computers policy or otherwise via a separate GPO?  If you don't know about the firewall exceptions, disable the firewall on both sides and check again.  Post your results and we'll go from there :-)

You really do need to do more troubleshooting:

1. Is Remote Desktop enabled on the clients?
2. Is the Windows Firewall enabled?
3. Is the Windows Firewall set to Public, Domain, or another profile (sometimes the active profile can change)
4. Is there a third party firewall enabled?  McAfee had one if memory serves that was part of the antivirus.  Many antiviruses also include firewalls.
