Problems with RDP sessions

Hi Experts,

we are using alot of RDP sessions in our network.
But since some weeks we have problems with it.

Sometimes the sessions close itself.
If a session is open, the screen qualitiy is also really poor.

Do you have some hints from where it comes ?

How many users are connecting?  Sessions may close if multiple people are connecting any you have not purchased terminal server licensing.

W/o purchasing Terminal Services CALs you're limited just as you've seen to two (2) RDP connections.

(You can sort of cheat and get one more session, BTW, by using the "/admin" or "/console" switch on the Terminal Services client.)

Is the target a latpop or workstation that goes into sleep mode?

It would be good to trial something such as Dameware / TeamViewer to see if they also suffer from network latency.

If multiple remote desktop solutions fail to perform then you may have some network issues.

As always there is a risk when installing new software to your machine.  If the target it s a VM maybe a snapshort before and after the software trial would be in order.  Or a restore point if a traditional machine.

You can also adjust RD settings for a lite experience:
