What is the least compatible client version that will connect to a Windows 2008 terminal server? I have a client that has Thin Client boxes with RDP 1.6 and the boxes can not connect. Is there a work around? Thanks.

    You need to select the less secure option on the 2008 server so that Network Level Access is not enabled.

    If you look at the remote options there are 3 options.

    I used that but the Termnal servers still are saying that they can not connect. They connect to a 2003 server with no problem. Not sure if it is a compatibility issue or something else. The version is pretty old though.

    I meant the clients are saying that they can't connect.

    For some reason I am thinking that it has to be at least version 6 to connect.  I can't find that anywhere, though.

    Thanks for all your help. I think it has to be at least version 5.1. I installed 2003 64 bit instead. I now can use the 8gb ram and use RDP.

    Downgraded to 2003 54 bit.
