RDP on Windows 2003 Server R2

By diamond_pcs ·
I have installed a new DC (W2K3 R2) and created a new domain. I cannot connect to the server via Remote Desktop. I have it enabled, I have checked licensing and even enabled RRAS. I have set the list of allowed users for remote access. Whenever I try to connect, whether its from a pc on the domain or through the internet, the connection fails. Windows firewall is off, 3389 is opened on my router... I am stumped... Please help, it's greatly appreciated. Thanks

Network setup?

How is your network set up? Is your server to get an internal IP address?

Typically Remote Desktop from a PC on the Domain connects to a computer by specifying the computer name or its internal IP address and thru Internet by specifying the router IP address, which is forwarded to the internal computer IP address.

In the router you need to forward port 3389 to the Server IP address.
