The problem can come from a problem of encryption (CredSSP):

Error (CredSSP encryption oracle remediation) when you try to RDP to a Windows VM in Azure - Virtual Machines | Microsoft Docs 
The problem exists when a workstation not updated is trying to connect to a server updated, or the contrary.

The workaround (registry on the client) is generally the quickest way to verify and connect.

#Add the vulnerability key to allow unpatched clients
REG ADD "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\CredSSP\Parameters" /v AllowEncryptionOracle /t REG_DWORD /d 2
