Data Encryption Error when using Remote Desktop Connection.
Posted on 2007-10-08
Hi all, and thanks.
A few weeks back, we took a very old Dell GX1 and believe it or not, set it up as a WIndows Server 2003 to check how well Remote Desktop worked. We are connecting two offices and have a rather heavy app to run on one side.
Everything worked well, users where happy, all was good. We then purchased a new Dell PowerEdge 840 with 4GB RAM, Raid, Xeon processor, etc....
We setup everything as we did before, but when I try to connect to the new server, I get the following message
Remote Desktop Disconnected.
Becuase of an error in data encryption, this session will end. Please try connecting to the remote computer again.
(trust me, I tried and tried ;)
We decided to compare the two servers, since the old one is still running, I matched apples to apples, everything is the same, users have been given permission, all the settings are the same (except machine names of course). Still no luck. I can login to the older server fine, but this new one is giving me trouble. Microsofts web site is no help at all on this paticular error.
Anyone have any ideas how to fix this or what step I can try.
