Win XP Sp2 seems to create RDP connection problem to Win 2k server

Upgraded my workstation last week, and RDP'd to one of my Win 2k (sp4) servers.
Could not launch Windows Explorer either locally or remotley, and the connection would lock up.

Uninstallation of XP sp2 got me back to normal.

BUT, eventually I'll need to upgrade, so the question remains:
what in the sp2 affected my rdp?
how can I ensure that the version of rdp on my win2k servers will be able to handle future connections after I upgrade?

Thanks

Steve

Hi,

You just asked the million dollar question... This is SP2 for XP, a lot of strange things happen after installing it. The thing is that a lot of people might be using it, so i would check to see if Microsoft pronounced something on the subject, else just wait until they do...

XP SP2 seems to automatically enable the firewall.  Have you tried disabling it and then attempt to connect to your server via RDP?  To disable the firewall in SP2, right click on your Network Connection and choose properties, then select the third tab, I think Advanced and disable it.  Hope this helps :)
