Windows XP SP3 PC gets "Remote Desktop Gateway server is temporarily unavailable" error message
Posted on 2010-08-30
Good morning everyone,
So we're trying to connect to a third parties server but when I connect using a Windows XP SP3 box I get the Remote Desktop Gateway error message up in the Title. It works fine on 2 of our Windows 7 machines but we're just using those to test out our apps so can't upgrade to it yet. Here's what I've done thus far:
1) Fully update both machines that I'm testing this out on.
2) Reset IE to defaults
3) Downgraded to IE7 on one PC, upgraded to IE8 on another one
4) Edit the registry on the client system(s) to enable CredSS as per KB951608 but with no effect
5) Installed RDP 7.0 for SP3. (Shell and Control versions 6.1.7600)
I'm pretty much out of ideas so hoping someone here can provide some more insight in to what I can do to fix this. Just to reiterate it seems any XP box I use has this problem (at least the 3 I tested it on).
