RDP Connection Timed out


I have a remote PC which I want to connect using RDP over a IPSec Peer-Peer VPN. When I am trying to connect it give an error 'Connection Timed Out'. Port 3389 is open on the firewall and the same can be verified fron the firewall logs which shows accepted packets. The netstat command run on the remote machine shows connection established from my machine.


I am also able to connect to other machine on the same remote subnet. Also i tried to telnet this machine on port 3389 and is able to telnet.

Please suggest the solution.

Re: RDP Connection Timed out

Might need to restart the Terminal Services service on the remote machine.
