Question cannot log into company remote desktop but I could before with Windows

Just installed Xandros 4 and am using Firefox web browser. Browsing no problem. E-mail pulls mail off server no problem. Trying to log onto a remote corporate server for other functions using a remote desktop connection. I type in the correct IP that I have always used, hit "Connect" and nothing. Number sits there and cursor keeps blinking. This happened once when I was trying to log into the company server from a Kinkos using Windows. However it didn't start with my box until I wiped Windows and replaced with Xandros. Any suggestions?

You might need to check that port 3389 is not blocked with your firewall?

Thanks fordeck. I forgot to mention my firewall wasn't activated yet so it was unoperational.

Try FreeNX client on your linux. Never had any problems logging into windows servers using that client.
