I have the Windows Server 2008 Standart and home machine with WinXP.
WinBox v2.2.18 ....
When I run this version at Windows Server - then it's run, but no connect to MT with ROS v5.14 (I can't check with other version of ROS at this moment). Visually - click "connect", WinBox load all modules-plugins if cache is clear (of course, I try to clean it) and DROP (close) connection without any message and errors and after that terminate the self process. Version 2.2.16 is work fine at Windows Server - open the GUI after loading the modules.

Firewall is not block anything for localnetwork and I did the test with firewall turned off - version 2.2.18 not work too. UAC is turned off. All paths is right in registry. And I have Windows Server 2008, not Vista.
All cache-files was created successfully. When run the WinBox (any version) - then I see the full list of saved connections and I can choose any one.
But, if I run the WinBox v2.2.18, then after click "connect", GUI is not open and connection was dropped without any message (and no messages in eventlog). If I run the WinBox v2.2.16 - then all is worked fine: after click "connect", GUI is open and I can change the configuration of MT.
I say, that only version 2.2.18 is not work correctly - all previous versions work fine (I work on this Windows Server around 3 years ago with this MT RB600A and do upgrade from ROS version 3.xx step by step to 5.14, also upgrade the WinBOx tool - because for me is useful this way for configure of MT.
