Remote Server unable to login

So I have a Windows 2003 server running as a domain controller and a Windows Server 2008 as a member server setup to act as a terminal server.

This has worked fine for a good few years but all of a sudden I cant login to the 2008 server remotely, it just says the username and password are incorrect. This happens for all the remote users.

Soon as I try to connect internally it works fine?

I have rebooted both servers along with the router but cant see why this would happen.

Any ideas would be great.

Thanks

I wonder if this is due to a recent Windows Update.

Here's a seemingly related post which just appeared: http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Windows/Windows_7/Q_28635660.html

Do you know if updates were recently installed?

I have reinstalled the server with 2008 and 2012 today, I do not have all updates installed.
I expect it is a problem between domain controller (server 2003) and remote desktop server (2012/2008)

Will give that ago but not sure that will be it as it's been working fine for a good few years until the end of last week.

The only thing that seems to have changed is automatic updates.

Just for reference I had to remove these two updates from both my 2008 RDP server and my 2003 DC.

Thanks again.
