This is a goofy question, but does Windows Remote Desktop limit the speed of data when using remote desktop? I am asking this because our network is fast and the connection for RDC is fast on a laptop I am testing. Once I am using RDC some programs just seem to lag in the RDC environment. Specifically using web based applications seem to be very slow in RDC.
I realize I may not be asking this question in the right way...

RDC not effect the remote machine speed by limit it.
it could be that the connection itself cause some load on the remote machine so it became slower

you need to remember that when you connect via RDC all you see is a "screen captures" of the desktop.
some times the frame rate is not high because of network bandwidth between your machine and the remote machine that's why thing seems working slower.
