Enable Remote Desktop on Server Core

I ran the command
cscript scregedit.wsf /AR 0 and cscript screfedit.wsf /CS 0 from the C:\Windows\System32 prompt like the MS Press book said to do to enable remote desktop on server core. When trying to verify the firewall exception with "netsh firewall show service" it shows nothing meaning no exceptions. I then tried to open the port using "netsh firewall add portopening TCP 3389 RDP", it said OK but still no exception listed and still not able to connect using RDP from the other server.

    I've had the same problem with that section of the ms press book. I recommend searching technet for guidance.

    The problems not there. I was able to connect using the IP. The server core isn't in DNS for some reason, I'll fix it.
    Fixed.
    Disregard this thread anybody seeing this now. It was just something else f'd up

    Also remember that in 2008 you can add inbound and outbound port openings seperately.
    I got a fortune cookie that said "Outlook not so good" and I thought to myself "Yeah...but Microsoft sells it anyway."
