Windows Server 2008 R2 RDP doesn't work

Last Modified: 2015-10-20
Dear Expert,

I had serveral phone calls about not working RDP to Server 2008 R2 since this morning.
For example server SRV-TEST. I can ping to and from SRV-TEST. I cannot use RDP to connect to the server. I did not install updates yesterday.

- restart of SRV-TEST did not help
- restart of router did not help-
- I can use RDP from SRV-TEST
- I cannot TDP to SRV-TEST internally nor externally (NAT)
- ping works fine both directions, I can browse file shares on

Do you have some tip?
