Sometimes with Windows Server 2012, you may not be able to login on a fresh server, even those RDP rules, and access has been allowed. You will need to check the RDP port is open in Windows Firewall.

To open the port

  • Open Windows Firewall
  • Click Inbound Rules
  • Add New Rule
  • Type RDP Port (should be 3389) unless you have changed it in the registry
  • All on all profiles, domain, public & private.

Thats all
