The path of least resistance would be to uninstall the Remote Desktop service role. If you are not using the server as a session host, you could do with the 2 administrative sessions. No additional licensing or configuration needed.

A UCC cert is more of a marketing term than a technically different type of certificate. A UCC cert is really just a regular X509 certificate with a bunch of SANs (subject alternative names) on it. As such, you can easily mimic the functionality of such a cert with your own internal certification authority. If you own the CA, you can have it issue ...

Using an RD Gateway is a superior solution. It should satisfy requirements of infosec as well.

Maybe this is related to KB2962806. You should try to apply it. I don't know how to apply this update because it is not available on the Microsoft site. I only get it with the automatic Windows update but not on every computers. This update solved a similar problem for me. And since this update is applyed on SOME computers, every others work too. I didn't ...

With a Cisco AnyConnect VPN there is an option on the client side to allow this IF the VPN admin is allowing split-tunneling. You can see the option here: As far as on the firewall itself, if you are the VPN/firewall admin (I'm guessing you aren't) then the setting is similar to this here:

Here is the documentation on the Remote Desktop Services CAL licensing for Server 2008 R2, from Microsoft. That's as much as we're willing to say about the strictly licensing part of the issue. Regarding the technical question (the behavior of RDS): Generally speaking, the Remote Desktop Services will not block you from using those 2 default sessions you ...

I have had great success in making scenarios like this work in VMWare ESXi, but just one experiment with Hyper-V. In that particular instance, I ended up with a very nice setup for client VMs with vGPUs working fine, but for Windows Server edition, I could not make it work. This is actually detailed by MS here. Quoting the document: Note, RemoteFX vGPU ...

I suspect your corporate laptop VPN has been set up and configured a mode to tunnel ALL traffic down it and not just corporate traffic. In order for you to remote desktop, you will need to have it set up in a split mode. I am unfamiliar with the Cisco VPN but, for example on Sonicwall SRA devices the option is "Tunnel all mode". Many sysadmins setup their ...

Have you tried using the /admin switch which should connect you to the console session? mstsc /admin /v:host.example.com

You are probably using a central group policy store. Copy the contents of C:\Windows\Policy Definitions from the newest / most up-to-date server and place them in SYSVOL\domain\policies\PolicyDefinitions. This ensures that whenever you use the group policy management console it will be reading from the same central set of ADMX policy templates. When you ...

My problem was I was trying to use a Gen2 VM instead of a Gen1. Creating a new VM based on Gen1 "hardware" fixed the issue.

When you are configuring your remote desktop connection, there is an option that is labelled 'local resources' from there you can pass through local drives to the target machine. You shouldn't have needed to install remote desktop from the store since the client is included by default. In the search box on the taskbar, type remote desktop and it will appear ...

You will get this logon type 3 when you are using NLA (Network Layer Authentication) as the authentication type since it will try and pre-authenticate you prior to giving you RDP access. You can test this by changing the security layer to RDP Security Layer. Instructions and detailed information on how to do so are found here: Configure Server ...

There is an article in the documentation addressing this.

Another option is to use an SSH tunnel. PuTTY, to name names, has an easily-configured proxy option, so it can work through the proxy server and then provide a local tunnel through which you can connect to the RDP destination. This does assume that the client has something to login to via SSH, and more specifically something that can communicate with the ...

You can prevent this from happening by making sure you are not sharing drives via your RDP connection. When connecting to a server via RDP: Click Show Options Go to the Local Resources tab Click Settings Click More Unselect all drives This worked for me and got rid of the "Preparing paste information" dialog.

You can disable drive, device and printer redirection via local or group policy. In order to disable clipboard redirection you have to kill the rdpclip.exe process in the remote session. You can do this by writing a batch file that kills that process and using it as a login script for the remote session.

Microsoft Update KB2984972 - Uninstall this and reboot the host. We had the identical issue today after automatic updates were applied.

Remote Desktop Services actually have a pretty rich WMI object library you can take advantage of to query and manipulate the configuration. As of Vista/2008, it's located in the root\cimv2\TerminalServices namespace. Here's a good place to start on browsing what's available: Remote Desktop Services Configuration classes In regards to your specific ...

I found a solution to make it work. My work laptop need to be connected to a vpn with cisco any connect . And I wanted to connect to my work laptop using remote desktop to have a better experience with my home PC mouse and keyboard and a bigger screen. I had this error after the VPN was connecting: Vpn establishment capability from a remote desktop is ...

I would like to explain what happened: On your local X11 your keyboard's keycodes are: 111 for ▲ (up arrow key) 104 for ENTER on keypad But over x2go, the very same keys produce different keycodes! 104 for ▲ (up arrow key) I have no idea why the implementation of x2go does this (instead of forwarding the keycode as is!), but that it how it is. This ...

I had this exact same problem. After I deleted a Group Policy printers kept coming back all over the place. The only solution for me was: Downloading PSTools Running CMD as administrator Run the command psexec -i -s c:\windows\regedit.exe (make sure you don't have regedit open already, otherwise it gives an error) Delete all keys under ...

We had an issue where no one could log on as the limit was reached, so we used Remote Desktop Services Manager. That allowed us to see who was RDP in and disconnect the user who forgot to log off.

Other than combing through the event logs, looking for Logon Type 10 (Remote Desktop) in the Security Log, or looking at the TerminalServices channel event logs, you'll need to use third party software. In addition to TSL mentioned above, here is one other I've used with success in the past - Remote Desktop Reporter http://www.rdpsoft.com/products If you ...

In addition to Ericom, who makes an excellent product, consider migrating your Terminal Server farm to Windows 2012 RDS. Windows 2012 features version 8 of the RDP protocol, which utilizes adaptive, optimized delivery of graphics, video etc and combines UDP with TCP for transport. The throughput and responsiveness in general is much better than previous ...

Credential prompt has been driving me mad for the past couple of days, and following the chain of recent events leads me to believe it's related to KB3035017 that our 2012 RDP servers installed recently. After searching this post and other I've come across something that so far is working around the problem. Testing RDP icons side my side on the same ...

You have a Windows 7 Home Premium. That version doesn't allow access via Remote Desktop. The ticked option you mention is for "Remote Assistance". You need to "invite" the remote party to view your computer with "Remote Assistance". You can see this from the checkbox is in the "Remote Assitance" groupbox and not in the "Remote Desktop" groupbox. If you want ...

I'm not sure if it's different on an Azure VM, but you don't technically need RDP Gateway services to use TLS (SSL) with RDP. The native RDP service will run over TLS just fine all by itself as long as you configure it that way. And if the question is more along the lines of connecting on port 443, you can just change the listening port from 3389 to 443. ...
