Remote Desktop Fails to connect to Windows Server 2008

I have three new Windows Server 2008 x64 Ent. servers and I am having problems connecting to them via Remote Desktop Connection, I get disconnected every minute or so.

I am connected to the server and don't interact at all the connection stays, but if I click on anything there is when the disconnection starts.

I have setup the Remote Desktop on the server to allow connection from any version of RDC (less secure), but still.

Is there any work around/fix for this?

Error: "the terminal server security layerdetected an error in the protocol stream and has disconnected the client"

Error: "the terminal server cannot register "TERMSRV" Service Principal name to be used for server authentication. The following error ocurred: The specified domain either does not exist or cannot be contacted"

It is possible you may have some DNS issues.
