    I am tring to connect to my win 2003 x64 using 'remote desktop connection',
    however the client fails to connect every time.

    on my x64 server, the box for 'Allow users to connect remotely to this
    computer' is check under the system properties. The user I am using to
    connect is an administrator. My understanding of Windows 2003 is as long as
    this box is checked, terminal services for admin purposes is enabled. No
    further config or software is required. I also checked the TS Service, and
    it is running.

    Any ideas? Different port? Special mstsc?

  2. Check that there isn't a firewall restriction. Then check the Group Policies
    that apply to that machine.

    I'm using XP Pro. On the client, in the remote connection setup, I had
    to log on to the host as a user that exists on the the host. On the host
    I had to add this user to the remote desktop user group. Maybe you need
    to do this ?
    I also connect specifying the port, 3389.

    Hope this helps

    I can't even get the terminal session login window to pop up. Immediatly
    errors out. Almost like the service was stopped.

  7. The problem isn't x64, whatever it is, since we're all doing this here quite
    happily. Whatever the source, it's a general configuration issue. I still
    think it's a firewall issue -- keep in mind that TS uses different ports than
    any of the things you're describing as working. I suggest you try over on the
    "work_remotely" newsgroup. That's where the TS folks hang out.

    One last thought -- what chipset is being used on the x64 server? If it's
    nVidia, you could be getting nailed by the bug in nVidia's built in firewall.
    Unless you install the firewall software, and then un-install it, you can
    have problems.
