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

    We have just been speaking with the manufacturer Netvoyager they logged in successfully to their 2008 server using the same boxes with RDP 5.1 and 4.0

    Accepted Solution

    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.
