I have a S08 R2 machine. I am trying to remote to this from a win8 box and keep getting access denied.
I am using my domain account and I have checked that it is allowed through the firewall as well.
Please ensure you have added the domain users group into Remote Desktop Users group.
Meanwhile, you can refer to this blog with more troubleshooting steps.
