I have a 30 computer network (mix of Windows XP and Vista machines) running on a Windows Server 2008-based single-server domain The server is used as a file server and also hosts our intranet (using Sharepoint 3).
I am now trying to deploy terminal services on the network. The terminal services role is installed and I have also installed 30 per-device CALs. I have set up terminal services to be accessed by client machines through the local URL http://mydomain/ts
. Client machines can succssfully access the terminal services page.
When you attempt to run a terminal services application (in this case, the bog standard windows Calculator found under Programs/Accessories/Calcu
lator!) however, you are asked for your username and password but no username or password works, not even any of the administrators passwords. The username/password screen always returns and says ' the credentials that were used to connect to [server name] did not work. Please enter new credentials'.
Why won't the credentials work?
