Problem with RDP to workstation through SBS2011.

I have a problem with Remote Desktop disconnecting after about 45 seconds with Windows 8.1 workstation(worked fine with windows7).

System: Window 8.1 upgrade from 8.0 early retail
-Would not connect at all but I could see the computer through SBS2011 panel remotely and would try to connect with Computer not found.
-downloaded all Microsoft's  latest and greatest updates.
-Can RDP through SBS2011 but drops connection after a bit.

Will stay connected if I RDP to server2011 and RDP to the workstation through the server.

Thanks is advance for you help before I go back to windows 7 on this workstation.

45 second timing matches this, and I've seen it resolve similar issues:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2897602

If that doesn't work, I'll note that this is a problem that appears to have multiple possible causes - you might want to review this thread and look at the several things that have worked for other users who had this problem.

The issues started when switch to a different NIC, rdp to server 2012 drops every 40-60 seconds.

The problem is still current. None of the solutions solved the problem. All microsoft updates have been install on the SBS2011 server and the 8.1 machine.  It disconnect after one minute and wants to debug with VS. Stays connected locally rdp the server than rdp into the w8 machine. If I log into SBS2011 panel and select computer it logs on  and disconnects after one minute. I will try removing printers to see if it helps.

Problem SOLVED. To anyone that has this issue, get rid of all printer drivers and reload the ones you need one by one until you find the culprit! It could also be caused by a Bluetooth device trying to link across the  remote. I would have never Guessed!
