Most of the time my RDC works perfectly. Sometimes it slows to a complete crawl and I cannot even get my mouse clicks to register on the remote computer. The client computer is Windows XP, so there's no chance of it being a tcp autotuning issue (not introduced until Vista AFAIK). I also get "session ended" messages randomly.
Here's the computer specs -
- Windows XP Pro SP3
- RDC 6.0
- Core Duo T2600 (2.16 ghz)
- 2 GB memory
- 5Mbps download, 500 Kbps upload
- Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise SP1 (x64)
- Core i7 3.07 ghz
- 12 GB memory
- 2 Mbps download, 5 Mbps upload
I've tried tuning down all settings (resolution, colors, etc) to no success. I can communicate in other ways with the server (FTP, HTTP, etc) when its slow over RDC with no problems at all.
