You're not really giving people a lot to work with. It's a bit like saying "my car isn't working, what's wrong with it?". Have a look at for some advice on following a logical procedure to isolate the fault. One of the first steps with a Windows system is to investigate the error logs.

Did you properly configure or disable Windows Firewall?

i'm sorry, but I don't offer consultancy services. If you want someone to sort this out for you you need to hire a local consultant.

"i cant access them remotely "

Why would you expect by default you would?

Just because you are running AD does not mean the workstations are accesssable.

You need to share something on them as well as enable RDP on the workstations if you wish to access them.

Normally in a server/client configuration you do not have workstation to workstation traffic. This is because you want all the user files on the server since it gets backed up.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
