Remote Desktop Connection

Tags:
Microsoft Windows Server 2003
RDP
I have two Windows Server 2003 Standard boxes configured as File and Application servers. One is running SQL Server and is running the original release of Server 2003 and the other is R2 running Blackberry Enterprise Server. They both have "Allow users to connect remotely to this computer" checked, both have the Remote Desktop Group populated with the same users, and both have the services running. However, using an XP box on the LAN (no problems connecting to either box - mapping drives, connecting to them through Event Viewer, etc.), I am only able to use Remote Desktop Connection to connect to the R2 box, but not to the other one. Is there a setting I am missing somewhere?

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

The one piece of information I did not think to add was the box has three network cards but 2 are disabled. When I went into the Terminial Services Configuration/Connections screen (Start > Run > tscc.msc /s), double-clicked on the RDP-TCP connection, and configured it to use the active network adapter, it solved the Remote Destop issue. For some reason, the TS was configured to use one of the disabled adapters.
