Q

Recurrent 'unable to connect' message

I have installed TS on our SBS server-WIN2K Server as REMOTE ADMINISTRATION. I made sure the service started, then I installed 32b Client software in a Win2k Pro machine on our network. I keep getting error message "UNABLE TO CONNECT WITH SERVER. SERVER MAY BE BUSY. TRY AGAIN LATER". I would appreciate any 'How-to' help!
"Server too busy" is shorthand for a lot of problems but frequently signifies some kind of network issue. See if you can run Remote Desktop on the SBS server to create a TS session locally (just select the same server you're connecting from -- you can do this). Can you connect from ANY computer on the network, or is that particular computer the only one that's a problem?
