RDP drops connections, but Citrix Doesn't
Posted on 2009-04-22
Ok, working at a branch office and we normally use Citrix to connect to our parent company, through a site-site VPN for all our apps. I've got a user, who normally works out of the head office, who uses RDP (why? no clue, but that's how they got 'em set up). When this user is in the branch office, the RDP session seems to drop the connection ever 10 minutes or so. Citrix will hold a connection just fine (once again, not too sure why the user is not using Citrix, but this is how management wants her setup). This user is going over WiFi to connect when in the branch office. I'm looking to see if there is any info on bandwidth usage, does RDP tax bandwidth more than Citrix? We're using the newest version of RDP. Any suggestions are much appreciated.
