Remote Desktop Client for Windows XP x64 Edition and Server 2008

We have a small research group that runs Windows Server 2008 Terminal Server.  Some of our research workstations run XP x64.  Now that we have upgraded to Server 2008, we can't seem to connect via terminal services (password error).  I assume we need RDC 6.1 but can't seem to find it for XP x64.  Is this true?  If so, are there any work-arounds? Thanks.

You may be able to dumb down the RDP requirements to not require NLA.   In the Remote Properties you can try selecting Allow connections from computers running any version of Remote Desktop (Less Secure)

Thanks. I remember configuring the requirement for NLA during setup, but don't see that option now.  Where are the NLA properties configured; that is, where can I find Remote Properties?  Thanks again for your help.

Load Control Panel, then Select the System Icon.
Once loaded, select Advanced system Settings.
Next click the remote TAB
Under Remote Desktop, you likely have the bottom option selected, select the middle option.

You may also need to adjust a GPO or a local security policy to prevent it if is enable:
load gpedit.msc and navigate here:
Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Terminal Services\Terminal Server\Security
The setting: "Require user authenitvate for remote connections by using NLA", is what you are after.  You may need to set that to disabled if it is enabled.
You can also load RSOP.MSC and navigate to the same location and it will tell you what GPO or policy is setting it, if it is indeed enabled.

Thanks. I tried both of your excellent suggestions: I have removed the requirement for NLA and disabled the NLA policy.  Unfortunately, the XPx64 machine still can't connect.  I get the usual Terminal Services 2008 logon screen, but the authentication fails.  Any other ideas???
