XP to XP RDP while preventing the possibility Man in the middle attack.
I am working inside a network and can get RDP to work just fine. We only use RDP inside our network or when connecting with a VPN. What I am trying to do secure the connections using certificates ? if that is the way to do it ?. I have upgraded my RDP to 6.0.6001 on my client machines and I have been able to get the certificates to be passed to me from Server2003 and Vista. The issue is getting the XP computers to pass certificates or authenticate to the server when connecting to another XP machine.
If anyone has set this up or knows how to do it please let me know.
This is what I have tried:
Created a CA certificate
Made sure that the computers have the certificate as trusted.
Modified the client registry on the XP computers that I am testing.
Tried to connect using authentication but have not had any luck.
I can get the XP cleints to connect to each other without using server authentication.
