Hi,

 I have iPad2 and downloaded a free version of Remote Desktop Lite - RDPBy MochaSoft.
 It connects to my Terminal server 2008 ONLY IF the user account has administrative previliage.
 When I read FAQ from the software company website, it says it would not support Terminal Server connections due to a licencing issue with Microsoft.
 However it make the connection as long as I use administrative account. I can make this user account as part of administrative group, but I prefer not to do that.

Thanks.

Try making the user a member of the (Local) Group Terminal Server Users and/or Remote Desktop Users on the terminal server.

This app is not supported to terminal server.
You will have to purchase PocketCloud as they have the API for TS Sessions.

We do have a terminal service where users have been connecting using PCs from outside, so that has been that way for a long time. Remote Desktop Lite - RDPBy MochaSoft works only if the account is admin account.

It works fine as long as the account is admin account.

When I changed the user account with admin privilege, it worked.
