RDP issue, Port No 3389 not listed under netstat

Came across an issue, where users were unable to connect to the Windows 2008 using RDP. When checked the RDP port 3389, its not listed under netstat -ano. Therefore, tried uninstalling the remote desktop services and reinstalled it multiple times. Was still unlucky and issue persists.

Finally was able to fix the issue by deleting the terminal services connection and recreating it.

1. Open “Remote Desktop Host Configuration”.

2. Delete the RDP-tcp.

3. Create a new RDP listener.

Voila! was able to connect to RDP instantly.

Thanks,
