Terminal Service session slow on Vista for just one server

    Terminal Service session slow on Vista for just one server

    So I am trying to terminal service into this particular host and every click
    of the mouse takes like 30 secs. Its like as if it freezes and then wakes up
    when i try to navigate through the session.

    So here is what I know so far..

    On another Vista PC and on XP, it works fine and I can navigate through it
    fast.

    This behavior is being seen on 2 PCs so far and I dont know if its because
    of the Cisco VPN client that we have installed. I uninstalled it as well and
    it still works as such.

    Infact this behaviour is to only one of the hosts that I terminal service
    into and not other hosts. Other hosts work fine.

    So it feels like its between my XP and this particular host and dont know
    what else is stored on XP to bind that relation between the host. I tried to
    connect on different networks, through VPN, without VPN, wireless and the
    other in built Ethernet adapter and no luck.

    It was working before and dont know whether it was the Cisco client as I
    said before and that was the first host I connected to after installing the
    client and making a VPN connection.

    Really confused and lost here.. Nothing in the logs..

    I need to TS into this one particular box on a frequent basis thats slow in
    responding now and I dont want to format my Vista and try again.

    Seen this ?

    I am using Vista Ultimate..

    netsh interface tcp set global rss=disabled
    netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled

    How can i see if its enabled today ? whats the command for that ? Also is
    there a GUI way to see the settings and to enable/disable through the GUI
    interface ?

    Thanks a bunch.. That worked..Dont know what else will break by disabling
    that in return ?

    Do you know what those functionalities allow you when they were enabled ?
    obviously its disabled now..dont want to break something else in return
    which I may bump into down the road that needs those setting enabled

    I don't know exactly what these settings do but I know that they are new in
    Vista TCP/IP stack.

    You should probably re-enable them after your servers are upgraded to
    Longhorn (Windows Server 2008).

    Re: Terminal Service session slow on Vista for just one server

    So the article talks just about the autotuning feature.

    I have also disabled rss i.e.
    netsh interface tcp set global rss=disabled

    What does RSS do ? Shall I turn it on and if so is it just the enabled
    command ?

    rss in this context stands for receive-side scaling.
    More information can be found here:

    927168 - TCP traffic stops after you enable both receive-side
    scaling and Internet Connection Sharing in Windows Vista or in
