Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection V6 Issues
Case 1: Installing RDC 6.0 on Windows 2003/XP machines
stops printer redirection. Resolution 1: Upgrade the printer driver.
Resolution 2: it was indeed the thin
print client. Using the new 7.0
(RDP) version of the Client fixes the issue.
No server update required.
Case 2: Authentication via SmartCard no longer works
for me. Answer 1: You get "Network
Level Authentication not supported" because the client computer (either XP
or Windows Server 2003) that you are running does not support Network Level
Authentication. It does not matter what is the remote computer you are
connecting to (e.g. in your case, Vista). Answer 2:
Can you please reconfirm that the Smart cards checkbox in mstsc ->
Options -> Local Resources -> More... section is checked? If not, please
check it and try again.
Case 3: How do I get rid of that first 'Enter Network
Credentials' prompt - the TS prompts me anyways even if I fill in the
fields, and click remember me -- and then, it really *doesn't* remember what
I typed in. Resolution: Uncheck
"Always prompt for password" in the Terminal Services Configuration ->
Connections -> RDP-tcp -> Logon Settings
Case 4: Remote Desktop slow. Resolution: netsh
interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled
