Terminal Services rejecting sessions on a server

Terminal Services recently began rejecting Terminal Services sessions on one of our servers. We have a very small IT dept. (3 admins) and none of us made any changes on that server. We have uninstalled and reinstalled several times but to no avail. It continues to reject our sessions. The server is able to be administered through vnc. In Terminal Server Manager, it says that the RDP TCP connection on port (65539) is down. If you reset it, it is still down but the port increments by one. I've been working on this for over a week. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Just for future reference, it's helpful to include the error message--Terminal Services has many error messages and they all mean something different. One possibility is that you're using DHCP for the terminal server and the server lost its lease. See if you can connect directly using the server's IP address instead of its name.
