Cant connect via rdp to server 2019

Not rocket science but trying to setup rdp connections to a windows server 2019 but each time I try it keeps saying remote connection are not enabled but they are...

I have the rdp enabled and the domain users added to it.

What am I missing here for this

Screen shot of exact error would be helpful.  Is it possible it means it cannot reach the server?  Is there a firewall, either Windows, Antivirus Firewall, or hardware firewall that could be blocking you?  Did someone change the RDP port (never a good idea).

This is probably the most common RDP error there is?

Is the server part of a domain?  If not, is it a Private network?  

If Public, here is an easy change to Private:

Change Network Location Type Using Security Policy

 Another way to change the network location type is to use the Local Security Policy Editor.
 We run the secpol.msc snap-in and go to the section Network List Manager Policies. On the right, find the network by its name in the Network and Sharing Center.  Then, open the network properties, and go to the Network Location tab, change the network type from Not configured to Private, and save the changes.
