Remote Desktop Connection issues - advanced
Posted on 2009-04-29
I have used MSTSC to connect to my office computer from home for two years. Now for some reason when I click Connect all I get is a black screen with the remote desktop bar at the top of the screen.
CTRL + ALT + END has no effect
All settings for rdp are configured correctly
I have disabled bitmap caching
I have tried adjusting the MTU
I have reinstalled the rdp client on both ends
firewall has port 3389 open for my internal LAN
remote desktop is enabled
user is configured to have access for rdp
like I said, this worked for over two years now I just get this black screen.
This is driving me crazy.
Another RDP issue I am having is on another desktop at work. Whenever a remote session is attempted to the computer, it does nothing. The rdp connection window simply flashes briefly, as if it tries to intiate a connection. I get no error, nothing. I can repeatedly press Connect, the fllash I mentioned lasts less than half a second. I have tried connecting by host name and IP with the same result.
These are both high priority issues as it prevents me and another worker from initiating remote desktop sessions to our office computers.
I do not want to use VNC or another program, I wish to solve the underlying problem. Max points assigned. Let's figure this out!
