I have an Issue with connecting to Windows 7 via RDP. I can open an RDP Session, but regardless of any settings, the response times are really long. This in particular is the case when opening a web page in a browser. I've tried IE, Firefox and Google Chrome.
I also use RDP connection to a Windows 2008 Server from the same client machine, and the speed is very normal with all features turned on. We have Gigabit Ethernet here. So I think it can not be the client's fault.
What concerns Windows 7 Machine, I've tried shutting all the graphic features off and turning the color levels to 256 colors. Result - the same.
If I work locally on the machine - I can not see any lags.
What else have I tried:
- Using old RDP 5 Client from Microsoft
- Setting network autotuninglevel as seen here
Do You have some ideas?
Thanks in advance!
Update the problem seems to be with rendering window contents. All the window borders and panes are rendered pretty quickly, but the content shows up very slowly. Also mouse movements are recognized by the Win 7 box only after some period.
Are there some hidden settings in the RDP, where one could turn some advanced features off or turn some caching on? I use Bitmap Caching, but this apparently doesn't help.
