I use Terminal Service in a 2000 professional machine connect to another network thru the internet.

The client 2000 professional machine has installed remote desktop (from XP)

The Server from the other side is connected with Cable Modem and has a U-Gate 3200 hub/router, connect to 4-5 workstations.

Everytime I connect to the server it only last a few minutes and I get mstsc.exe error
it said:
The instruction at "0x6a62a4c7" referenced memory at "0x0001b58". The memory could not be "written"

Can anyone help?
thanks in advance

I would update all the windows drivers and also do a Start-windowsupdate on both machines.

Check the MS site for the error you are getting also !


Also check to see what the delays is for your connectivity. If you have a bad connection, it may be timing out somehow.

I hope this helps !

I have T1 from the client remote,
connectivity should be good.
The other side I should have the most currently update when I set up the windows XP.

You could have bad ram, but given all the pieces involved, it seems more likely that there is an upgrade missing at one end or the other, leaving you with versions out-of-sync.

You might want to review compression settings for each, given MS changing of defaults to utilize over time. From their whitepaper "Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) Features and Performance":

Default Compression Settings

RDP compression is turned off by default when you start the Terminal Server client that ships with Windows NT Server 4.0, Terminal Server Edition. During Windows 2000 Terminal Services scaling tests at NEC's Redmond Technology Center, it was discovered that turning compression on made no discernable difference to the number of users that could be hosted on a terminal server. Therefore, compression is turned on by default when you start the Terminal Services client (mstsc.exe) that ships with Windows 2000 and the Terminal Services Advanced Client. As seen in Figure 3, turning compression on by default saves significant amounts of network bandwidth while increasing performance and having negligible effect on CPU utilization.

This is hardware problem, where machine thinks local ram is bad.

> connected with Cable Modem and has a U-Gate 3200 hub/route

it is not networking issue in that sense. But it can be, in the sense that the client is borrowing remote ram, such as of server.

> The client 2000 professional machine has installed remote desktop (from XP)

Mixing SW from one OS to another is typical problem. Such as for incompatibilies. If so, then some companies such as MS will either go "not recommended" or to provide a patch now and then to adjust for bugs.

Recommending upgrades for both client and server, even XP has a service pack out that contains many essential patches.
