    I have installed remote desktop web connection on my windows 2000 server. I am able to get to the log on screen but when I enter the server I.P and try and connect I get the message that the server maybe by too busy to accept connections, It may not be set up to accept connections or that their maybe a networking problem. I have forward the folowing ports 3389, 80, 4125 and 443. I have also tested it from several different pcs outside the lan with no result. This works perfectly from inside my lan might I add does anybody have any ideas?

    Yeah I believe its port 80 specified by default which I have forwarded. I get the remote services log in screen to which I can enter a server. Upon entering the server and connecting I get the error message. I've even checked with sheilds up and both ports 3389 and 80 are open

    When I try to use remote desktop over the internet I get the same message. Ok my next question is what do you need to do to be able to remote desktop to a Windows 2000 server machine via terminal services

    what kind of router you using? If its a home type of router, the home router is running a web server too to get to its admin page. That could be causing a conflict. I would suggest changing the default port in IIS to something other than 80 and then try connecting like this URL http://ipaddress: port/tsweb/. For example, if your IP address is 192.168.1.120, and you chose the TCP Port 1374, you would enter the URL http://192.168.1.120:1374/tsweb/.
