Hello,
I am trying to figure out why no one can log onto my windows 2003 server to the host desktop. It has worked for years and just out of the blue, it quit working. I have everyone's answers and nothing is working? Please help

What have you tried?

Can you even ping the computer?
Can you telnet to the IP and Port (3389 by default)?
Check your Firewall.
Make sure that the service is running.
Verify that it is even turned on still.
Make sure to use an Admin or a Remote user to login remotely and that it's group is enabled in your User Rights Assignments in secpol.msc or your domain's GPO
Check registry settings concerning RDP such as port number and maximum connections

You could also try a System Restore (in theory)
