Let me start by saying I fully understand the purpose of Network Level Authentication, its benefits, etc...
I am trying to find a way to connect to a Windows 7 box from another Windows 7 box without using NLA. This is for a proof of concept I want to perform. The target machine is set to accept connections from all RDP versions. The problem is that the Remote Desktop Client dosen't seem to have an option for a non-NLA only connection.
Is there a way to force it to connect without NLA? Could I install an older version of the RDP Client that dosent support NLA next to my current version? Is there a third party program that would suffice?
I found an old copy of mstsc 5.2 which dosent support NLA. This works for my purpose and I can keep it on hand, but I'm still curious if there is a better way to work this. Thanks.
