2008 Terminal server remote desktop super slow when accessing via the internet.
Posted on 2012-08-16
Hi. I have just taken over a network from another tech and today I started having issues with the terminal server. When accessing the server remotely (via the internet) the connection is super slow. When I access it from one of the other servers on the internal network it is fast.
I noticed Event ID 17
One or more of the TS Licensing certificates on the Terminal Services license server "PASTELSERVER" are corrupted. Therefore, the Terminal Services license server will only issue temporary licenses until it is reactivated.
I reactivated the licensing server as per the technet post I found.
I am now getting Event ID 1004
The terminal server cannot issue a client license. It was unable to issue the license due to a changed (mismatched) client license, insufficient memory, or an internal error. Further details for this problem may have been reported at the client's computer.
I then checked out the terminal services configuration and saw that there are no terminal services cals loaded at all on the licensing diagnostics.
Will not having any licenses installed cause this type of "slowness"
What I do not get is why terminal access to this server on the internal network is fast but accessing it from the internet as the same administrator account is slow?
