Hello, we have a 2008 server that was setup with RDP for years with no issues.  All of a sudden yesterday this stopped functioning. The username/password box comes up to login and then we get a Remote Desktop Disconnected error box that only tells us "This computer can't connect to the remote computer."  Nothing has changed in the environment and I have reviewed all the settings and found nothing amiss.  I have also rebooted the server several times.  The server can ping the system trying to RDP and that system can ping the server.  Any ideas?
