How does RDP client determine when to end a connection and then try?
Posted on 2014-07-29
I have a remote site with only 1.5 mbps... It's a symmetrical connection. We have 1.5 up and down.. Whenever I have 4-5 users trying to RDP into the remote server they randomly end their connections and start to retry. From what I can tell when allow of them are connected and if a few users try to download items via HTTP the circuit gets congested and starts to drop RDP sessions. I changed the RDP clients to use dial up experience mode and we'll see how this works out. But. How does the RDP client actually determine when to timeout and disconnect? If it based on available throughput/bandwidth at the moment in time or is it based on latency? I would assume it's based on what experience level you have it set on and the available throughput/bandwidth...
