Remote desktop disconnect

By kevin ·
Running windows server 2003. Trying to connect in the office from win xp machine and also tried connecting from a windows vista machine.

Get the dreaded The client could not connect from the remote computer. Remote connections might not be enabled. Or the computer might be to busy to accept new connections. It also might be a network problem.

Weird thing is. I can connect from home just fine. It is only when I use the computers in the office. I get the disconnect message.

Any suggestions?

Sorry if it sounds stupid, but just trying to cover all the bases. You cannot RDP to the server from a computer that is on the internal network, are you using the correct internal IP?

What about router/firewall ports? Are any of them blocked? Is port forwarding configured correctly?

Is the Terminal Services service started and running?

Are you using the correct account when connecting from the internal network?

yes we are using the correct internal ip. No ports are blocked. Yes the terminal services are configured are started and running. Not sure about the port forwarding. Yes using the correct account.

We just recently switched over to a belkin router
