I'm trying to connect to a remote SBS 2011 server using RDP from a fully patched Windows 8 PC.  When I enter the login details and click ok the login screen refreshes and asks for the login credentials again.  I know the credentials are correct as I can connect from a Windows 7 PC using the same details.

Any Ideas?

Did you specify the cedentials as "domain\user" or "computername\user" or just "user"?

Hi there, thanks for your response.  I tried to connect by using domain\user and it has worked.  I don't understand why typing the domain has worked as I don't have to do this when connecting from a Windows 7 PC.

Thanks for your solution though
