I'm supporting a user who's had an ongoing problem using RDP.
He uses a laptop at times to connect via RDP to his work desktop (after VPN'ing into the corp network). Every once and awhile, he'll have a problem connecting to his desktop via RDP.
Basically, once he gets on the network, he can open an RDP session and find his machine, then attempt to login to his machine. RDP will just hang at the login screen, and eventually just disconnects itself with no warning or error messages.
I've tried duplicating the problem on different machines, but the only people who seem to have the problem are ones who are extensively using Visual Studio.
Does anyone know if VS (which is a resource pig) somehow conflicts with RDP? And if so, are there any fixes for this? I asked him this morning to try opening an RDP session using mstsc /console ; he'll let me know if that works.
