Hi all :) I have a weird problem where all of a sudden RDP on one of our 5 server 2003 servers stopped working. The erro it comes up with is that it cannot connect. I tried RDPing to the server from itself and nothing. Using the IP address doesn't work either. ANy suggestions?? Thanks Tracy

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Try restarting the Terminal Services service. If that doesn’t fix it (it’ll fix it sometimes) then reboot the server.

    Is there something in the event logs ? A reboot will probably solve the problem, but you should investigate the root cause.

    Thanks guys :) A reboot sorted it. I will have a look through the event log too and see if there is anything amiss. Cheers Tracy
