Server 2008 requires RDP 6.1. You should talk to the manufacture to see if they have an update for their devices.
Good luck.

In system properties (sysdm.cpl) -> Remote-tab, choose "Allow connections from computers running any version of Remote Desktop (less secure)"

In Terminal Services Configuration (Server Manager), you also may nead to lower encryption level and security layer requirement.
