I have been using remote desktop to access a Windows 7 PC, tunneled over an SSH connection, successfully for a while now, until it suddenly stopped working.
The client is also Windows 7, and I double checked that the tunnel (with putty) was set up properly, and that remote desktop connections were enabled on the remote PC.
On the client I have a loopback adapter with a static IP of 10.0.0.1, and in putty I have 10.0.0.1:33891 forwarded to port 3389 on the remote server.
This worked fine till about a week ago, and I'm wondering what could possibly have happened? now the remote desktop client gets stuck at "configuring remote session" and then times out.
