Windows Firewall denies terminal server connections?

By Matt00 ·
Running Windows Firewall on our 2003 server domain controller seems to block access to our terminal servers. I have opened what i think are all related ports for TS and Remote Desktop and RPC, specifically 3389, but everyone still gets a Access is Denied error when attempting to connect.
Any suggestions? And i can provide more info obviously if that helps.

Any firewalls / vlans involved?

use the utility nmap to port scan the server and see if you can see port 3389.

Of course you can also telnet to 3389

There are no vlans configured. It seems to prevent connections to the Internet as well, even though i have IE as an exception and explicitly allowed HTTP and HTTPS.
NMAP shows the Remote ports being used and i allowed them aswell; still not working.
Thanks for the reply though.
