Differences between logging on through Remote Desktop and logging on locally
Posted on 2009-05-13
Would love to know this especially relating to program and network security.
Here's the situation: I am troubleshooting a laptop (XP Pro SP3) that has a program that connects to a server on the Internet via http to exchange information. The program works when connected to the laptop via Remote Desktop but does not work when logged on at the console. There is no other difference and this is really baffling me!
If people want to take a stab at the specifics I can post more information but here's a short list of some things I've already done: Updated Windows; Installed IE7 (I know 8 is out), recreated user profile; disabled any AV and anti-malware, test on two different networks; and other things..
But I really don't know where to look next because I've never known something to work in RDC and not while logged on to the console.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
