disabled tls 1.0, applied kb3080079 and still can't connect via RDP
Posted on 2016-09-01
I have this issue where my Qualys results now need me to disable tls 1.0. This I never did before as it disabled RDP access to my server. I see MS has released KB3080079 which is supposed to fix this problem. I am able to now get a request for credentials when attempting to RDP after disabling tls 1.0, but I get an error after hitting enter. I found out on Server 2008 R2 I can change the Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration to RDP Security Layer via the Properties of my default Connection Name. Is there any problem from a security standpoint doing so if one must connect to a VPN session or physically join to that network in order to RDP to that machine at all? Thanks!
