Terminal Services/RDP not working on XP

Specs: Windows XP Professional, Intel dual core/2GB
I am trying to get Terminal Services working on XP Professional. I have the firewall turned off, and Serivces show that Terminal Services is start and set to automatic. I have tried rebooting the system. I can not connect using RDP from another Windows XP Professional, or a Linux system. Port 3389 does not show as being open. I can RDP in the other direction, no problem.
The error I get is: Remote Desktop can not connect to the remote computer. I have checked the reasons suggested and all is okay. Strange. P.S I have all the latest updates.

Anybody have any ideas?

P.S. Registry shows port Number is 3389. Also This is a brand new DELL machine, right out of the box.

Found it. Need to right click on my computer and go into properties and enable remote access.
