Terminal services manager no longer connects after install..

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.work_remotely (More info?)

After installing XP SP2 I am no longer able to use the terminal services
manager to monitor connected users and remote control using the Term Serv
manager that was installed from the 2003 Server Admin pak. This was a great
remote management utility for XP clients that is no longer useable with the
secure XP SP2 patch. No firewalls are involved, only difference is SP2
update. Has been verified on several machines. Please advise on how to get
this back. Dcom Perhaps?

    Shehan,
    I am already using this version of admin pak. I acn connect to XP SP1
    machines just fine but when trying to go to any SP2 machine it says "server
    not found."

    Russ,

    Please note the spelling of my name. =)

    I would still uninstall and reinstall. Also, did you setup said machines so
    that Terminal Services could be managed remotely?

    For your Terminal Services Manager (Using it on a Remote Desktop) need,
    enter the following in the registry:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server

    Add a value named: "AllowRemoteRPC"
    Type: "REG_DWORD"
    Value Data: "1"

    Shouldn't require a reboot or anything, should just allow you to start using
    Terminal Services Manager to manage the XP box in question (the one you just
    added the regkey to.)

    Hope that helps..

    I tired your registry settings on both machines that were involved in the
    connection and still could not get through. I compared the registry settings
    from a W2K3 Server Box and found that this was enabled on the server. By
    default this is set to deny on XP SP2. Once set to 0 I was able to connect
    again to manage the Session and remote control remotely from any W2K3 SP1
    adminpak capable machine.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server
    fDenyTSConnections
    REG_DWORD
    Value - 0
