    Can Ping but cant connect


    I have a remote server that I can ping and when I run nmap it reports the
    rdp port open.
    But, I when I try to RDP in, it hangs on connecting. I also can not
    browse to that server with explorer and I am unable to manage it in AD.
    (say it can not be found) it is listed in wins and dns though. I am certain
    it is not malware as this is a production server with no exposed ports.
    Any ideas where the problem is?

    Regards

    I'd try the IP address instead of name to rule out DNS issues. Next I'd try
    these tools.
