terminal server disconnecting, 10 minutes to reconnect. Windows Server 2003
Posted on 2004-11-08
I am having a problem with terminal server at one of my clients. We are able to connect to lots of other customers' terminal servers without a problem.
The basic problem is that it will disconnect intermittently (show the flashing terminal disconnected icon). It can take up to 10 minutes or so before I can reconnect.
When it reconnects, I am back in the session where I got disconnected.
The interesting thing is that while I loose the connection to the terminal server, I also have a remote desktop connection to one of the pcs on this same lan where the terminal server is located. I do not loose the remote desktop connection. I am actually using it. I don't even notice the cursor jump, hesitation or anything. This server is running SQL Server to several clients on the local LAN with no sign of problems. I have tried leaving a constant ping -l 1 -t going and it doesn't show much variation. There is noting in any of the event logs.
I am connecting from my office via DSL to the Internet and they also have a DSL connection to the Internet. There is no VPN.
My PC is running XP Pro, but it has failed from other PCs in my office.
If I have to live with the getting disconnected, is there a way to get reconnected quicker?
I would appreciate any help.
