I have a windows server 2008 machine setup and have the remote desktop connection (RDC) set to require Network Level Authentication (NLA). I can RDC from a VIsta/WIndws 7 PC with no problem. I also can RDC from a WIndows XP 32-bit PC, after add require registry settings to enable NLA support for the RDC client on the system.

The issue is that I cannot figure out how to enable that same ability for a Windows XP 64-bit machine. Up to this point I have had to use other machines to RDC to the system. I have been rather unsuccessful hunting elsewhere. So, I am hoping there is someone around that can help.

Hello s24support,

Support for NLA was provided in Windows XP SP3, which you likely have on your 32-bit machine.  SP3 for Windows XP 64 was not as XP 64 is based on windows 2003 kernel and remains at the latest 2003 SP level.  I know of know workaround at this time other than downgrading security on the 2008 server, or using a 32-bit VM on the 64-bit machine to connect.

Yeah the VM route is what I have read elsewhere and was planning on setting up as a work around. In some cases it makes me dislike 64bit windows. I only recently built the machine running 64-bit xp. I have started to use Window 7, but am waiting on the drivers to be improved for my system first. Once that happens, I will definately be glad to jump off XP. Until then, I guess the VM route will have to do.
