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.

Troubleshooting:
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
4.Goto:
- 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
