Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Sometimes i get disconnected from my Windows Server 2003 VPS (mostly due to internet outages). When i try to log in after that i get the following error message:

This Computer can't connect to the remote computer.

Try connecting again. If the problem continues, contact the owner of the remote computer or your network administrator.  

Is there a way to connect to the disconnected session?

Restarting the server isn't an option.

Perhaps the issue that caused the disconnection is still occurring. –  Greg Askew Jan 18 '13 at 16:11
But isn't there anything to do about it? I can log in to the same user account via teamviewer but that is different session so i can't control the aplication that i need. –  John Jan 18 '13 at 16:21
Have you done a qwinsta on the server to see if you still have a session? –  Edwin Jan 18 '13 at 21:11
