Remote Desktop Connection to Terminal Server Dropping

Hi

I have been having an issue with remote connections into our network.  Remote connections are performed using a VPN and then a RDP connection into a terminal server.  Recently, this connection has been a bit flaky and keeps dropping every 5-10 minutes?  The VPN stays connected but the RDP goes down.  The only way to get it back is to disconnect the vpn and start again.  Also, when you first try and connect, the VPN connects no problem but the RDP connection times out.  When you disconnect both the VPN and RDP and try again it goes straight in but only at the second attempt?

It was an issue with the firewall dropping the connection, as simple reboot solved the issue
