    added a terabyte hard drive to my server, thats all i did. all i did was format it as ntfs in another computer and then plugged it into the server. server recognizes it just fine. it runs xp pro

    now i can't connect to the server with rdp. i tried the computer name, the ip address, even the dyndns address. also tried connecting from a mac and vista pc.

    on vista it will ask for a password, then confirm you really want to connect. then it does nothing...just go back to the connect box.

    on my mac, it tries to connect for a second, then stops.

    i plugged in a keyboard and monitor to the server, it can remote desktop into my vista machine just fine.

    i can view my shares on the server just fine. i stopped and restarted the rdp service several times and the computer also.

    adding an additional hard drive has nothing to do with rpd...whats up with this?

    Well, I'm guessing you shut down the computer to install it, so it may just all be a coincidence. Pull the drive and find out.

    Make sure remote desktop is enabled in System Properties.

    pulled out the new drive, problem still exists

    turned off remote desktop under system properties, then turned back on. also made sure the user was selected

    i'll try a couple of things when i get home. i may just reimage the drive
