Have you enabled Remote Desktop on the 2012 R2 server firstly? Go to Control Panel on the 2012 R2 server > System > click on Remote Settings on the top left > tick Allow remote connections to this computer > click Select Users > add in the account you will be using to log into this server remotely > OK.

Try connecting to the server remotely again.

I know this may seem very basic but I have to ask - have you also checked Windows Firewall? Is Remote Desktop allowed for the current network profile? i.e. domain/work, home or public?
