RDP Data Encryption Error
Posted on 2013-01-28
Windows 7 Enterprise (64-bit)
Windows 7 Enterprise (64-bit) running in VMware Player 5.0 build 821388
I've got a client that I connect to their VPN via FortiSSL connection through a browser. I then RDP to a VM in their environment running Windows Server 8. I was able to RDP from my VM with no problems. Now, I get the following error when trying to connect via RDP 'Because of an error in data encryption, this session will end. Please try connecting to the remote computer again.' The customer has stated nothing has changed on their side. The odd thing is I can connect to them from my host OS, but not through my VM. Both Host and VM are running the same OS with same service packs, so they're basically the same. The NIC on the VM is configured for NAT, which it always was. I'm thinking it has something to do with Windows Updates, but I'm not sure which one would cause this issue.
UPDATE: nothing gets logged in the Windows logs when this error occurs.
