Re: RDP client not able to connect to 64bit Server 2008 machines
It works fine for me, I have several Win2008 and R2 x64 computers. Is
it possible it's a firewall/AV issue? I assume the servers have Remote
access turned on in Control Panel/System? Is anything in local group
policy set up to prevent this? You can google on it to see some of those
Usually different programs are run on the servers that might be more
robust or work differently. If you are able to, you might try turning
off all the security stuff and see if it works, then narrowing it down.
