Remote Desktop Connection to Windows Server 2012 Foundation


When I rdp into a Windows Server 2012 from a Windows 8.1 pc, it disconnects after 40 seconds or so. This does not happen from a Windows 7, 8 or Mac.  I installed kb 2911106 but it did not help. Any ideas?

I had this issue and was resolved by unistalling the VPN drivers. See this link below.


I think I have found the answer at http://kevinmarquette.blogspot.com/2012/10/windows-8-and-juniper-rdp-vpn.html.
Here is what Greg Wood says.
I've found that the Juniper simply doesn't like UDP that is part of RDP 8. Disable it.

Group Policy:
Local Computer Policy
Computer Configuration
Administrative Templates
Windows Components
Remote Desktop Services
Remote Desktop Connection Client
Turn Off UDP On Client --> Enabled

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\Terminal Services\Client\
Create a dword and assign a value of 1 to:  tofClientDisableUDP dword:00000001


That article is from 2012. I don't have a problem with 8, only with 8.1

But do you have any VPN client installed on the system? or any Printers?
