How to activate NLA on Windows 2003 RDP?
Posted on 2008-10-22
Just wonder if it's possible at all to enable NLA (Network Level Authentication) on Windows 2003 Server, 'cause I can't find any information anywhere about anyone that has done it.
My problem is that when I'm at home and need to check up on my servers, I connect via VPN and run RDP against my Terminal Server. From there I (want to) start up another RDP session against my Windows 2008 server.
I have tried the KB951608 (activate CredSSP.dll...) I know it's a XP fix but hey, I'll try anything to get this to work...
There's no difference wheter I'm running RDP from a 2003 SP2 or 2003 SP2 R2 and try to connect, still the same error: The remote computer requires Network Level Authentication, which your computer does not support.
Is the only way to connect to an w2k8 server today thru an PC running XP SP3!?!
I will NOT, I repeat NOT, lower the security level on this 2008 server, or any other 2008 Server, and allow any version of RDP to connect.
