Are there any GPO's that set Remote Desktop to be set up on Domain Servers?

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?
