Mac can't connect to windows 8 remotely

Postby blin » Mon Jul 25, 2016 10:57 am

Situation: Can't connect to 8.1 preview build 9431 with my Mac Remote Desktop Connection.

1.Make sure the firewall allows the RDP connection (already stated before)
2.Open the Management Console (mmc.exe)
3.Add the 'Local Computer Policy' snap-in
- Computer Configuration
- Administrative Templates
- Windows Components
- Remote Desktop Services
- Remote Desktop Session Host
- Security
5.Change the following two settings from their default (be aware that there might be a reason that MSFT has decided to set them to default. It might be advisable to revise those settings after a new Mac RDP client has been released)
- 'Require use of specific for remote desktop (RDP) connections' from 'Default' to 'Enabled', then select 'RDP' in the options pane
- 'Require user authentication for remote connections by using Network Level Authentications' to 'Disabled'
6.Restart the 'Remote Desktop Service' or simply restart the computer
7.Voila! I can use my Mac RDP client 2.1.1 (110309) with Windows 8.1 build 9431
