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.

Regards,

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.

Will my email signature work in Office 365?

You've built an email signature using raw HTML code in Office 365, but you can't review how it looks with Transport Rules. So you have to test it over and over again before it can be used. Isn't this a bit of a waste of your time? Wouldn't a WYSIWYG editor make it a lot easier?
