Hi,

I have an terminal server 2008r2. That was working fine till yesterday. There where no change on the server. It's now not possible to connect using MSTSC. We have change the port number to 33899 but still its not wording. We have put in the firewall the rule to accept 33899 trafic.

On the terminal server self it's poosible to connect with mstsc to the localhost:33899. But not on the IP address.

Can somebody help me?

Greetings Alex

Definitely sounds like an issue with Windows Firewall. Did you configure the Windows Firewall rule as below?

In the Protocols and Ports tab of your custom rule:
Protocol type: TCP
Local Port: Specific Port - 33899
Remote Port: All Ports

As a test, disable Windows Firewall on your 2008 R2 machine and see if you can connect via MSTSC.

Have you verified that the TS ip address has not changed?  When you ping the TS, do you get a response and is the response an IPv6 address?  If you get an IPv6 response, verify that your internal DNS servers do not have DNS bound to the IPv6 address of their NIC's...Capture.JPG-saige-

Hello,

I have solved the problem. I have make a new connection in the Hostserver for External sessie server. When I have done that, the RDP session where working. I think there was a corrupted setting the the default connection file.

Thanks for the support!!!!!

Did you verify that the port is open on the server?  netstat is your friend.  Also, you can use a program called netcat to connect to any port to verify it is open.
