Remote Desktop can't connect

We have setup Cisco WebVPN to connect to a windows terminal server published application.  All XP and Vista machines connect with no issues.

On Windows 7 machines only (32 & 64 bit), the process works up until you launch the .rdp file, at which point a windows error box pops up saying "RemoteApp Disconnected"  Remote Desktop can't connect to the remote computer for one of these reasons...."

The same Window 7 machine when connected to our LAN can connect with no issues.

We have entered the IP address of the machine in the host file, we have changed from calling the rdp session via name to IP with no difference in the result.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

No, I have it running 8.2.  
I don't know if Cisco mentioned this, but you need to have specific requirements to run 8.3, unlike 8.2.  http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/asa/asa83/release/notes/asarn83.html
Many factory default ASAs require RAM upgrades to run this new version of firmware.
If your ASA meets hardware requirements, upgrade to 8.3.  If not 8.2 should do it for you (from my experience).

Is Windows Firewall or any other firewall blocking port 3389?  It could be blocked on a "public" connection profile, whereas internally they would be apart of a "work" profile which would not disable that port.

No firewall, and we've tried all the predefined connection profiles just in case.  

At this point cisco is telling us that they may not support RDP with Windows 7.

Has anyone else successfully used webVPN with Windows 7 & a published TS app.

I have successfully used Windows 7 & published TS apps from both internal and external to the network.  I'm going to try it with WebVPN now and published TS apps.

Yes it just worked.  What is the device you're trying with the webvpn?  UC500?  ASA?  Could you post your webvpn config?

Thanks.  Will work with our network team.  Meanwhile, we're on 8.0.3 for ASA and Cisco is telling us that we need to be at 8.3.  Is that what you've got it running on?

Reginald-SmithAuthor Commented:
yes, they mentioned it which is why our network team is purchasing additional ram in preparation for the upgrade.

Thanks for your help on this.  since they've decided to upgrade to 8.3, we'll see if we can get it working once we're at that level.
