Netscreen Routing issues RDP dropping out

I have recently setup a Netscreen SSG5 firewall/Router on my network and have configured static routes to an MPLS router for traffic destined to a remote site. When I try and connect to any server using RDP via the MPLS route the RDP sessions continually drop out every 20 seconds or so. Though I can maintain a constant ping to the server Im trying to connect to with no dropouts.

I can set the default gateway on a test PC direct to the MPLS bypassing the SSG5 and the RDP works fine. I also have an older netscreen NS5Xt device with the same routes in place and no RDP issues
 
Is there anything I can check on the SSG5 Router which may be causing the RDP dropouts?

What is the timeout policy for TCP connections and xlates? Usually it's something like 3 hours or so?
Check that - I have a feeling that's your problem.
Cheers!

Thanks Pugglewuggle, I did a debug on the router and found that the "packet was dropped, first pak not sync" and found the resolution at a Juniper forum, "unset flow tcp-syn-check". This has resolved the issue.

In the world of WAN, QoS is a pretty important topic for most, if not all, networks. Some WAN technologies have QoS mechanisms built in, but others, such as some L2 WAN's, don't have QoS control in the provider cloud.
Quality of Service (QoS) options are nearly endless when it comes to networks today. This article is merely one example of how it can be handled in a hub-n-spoke design using a 3-tier configuration.
