We have a Proxmox Virtual Environment with Windows Server installed as a virtual server. All workstations access this Windows server via Windows Remote Desktop Connection. They currently cannot access the Windows Server, error message indicating REMOTE DESKTOP CANT CONNECT. I can successfully login to the Proxmox GUI via web browser and all services appear to be running successfully but GUI console doesn’t open the Virtual server for me to check the Windows Server health. Any suggestions please?
Check your network and firewall configurations. The Console in Proxmox does not involve the network, as it directly hooks into qemu. So make sure that all clients can reach the VM via network and that the required ports are accessible.
