I would like an expert help in my situation . I have a windows 7 professional workstation in a lab and it has all the applications installed for the lab. I sit on my desk with windows XP SP3 laptop. Sometimes I like to RDP to the Windows 7 workstation and check results. I have seen that when I do mstsc to the windows 7 computer the RDP client takes time to prompt me to the login window. We are on the same network segment and I am not sure what is causing this delay. Is there a way I can speed it up a little? Do I have to do any thing on the windows 7 or windows XP that I am using.
