Remote Desktop Craziness…

This problem bugged me all week.
Running Windows 2008 Server 32-bit in a Hyper-V VM, suddenly I couldn’t connect via RDP to the server from Windows7-64-bit or Windows Server 2008 32-bit.  I could connect via RDP from an older Windows Server 2003 32-bit.

Enough googling and I found this article, and the key was in the “Configuring authentication and encryption”.  I basically lowered to the lowest levels of security and it started working. Security Layer changed to “RDP Security Layer” and Encryption Level set to “Low”.  When I have time to go explore more I will try and increase these and see what works.
