    Problems with Vista Remote Desktop

    I am encountering a problem with RDC that began when I replaced Windows XP
    with Windows Vista. The best way to describe the problem is "stalling".
    Whenever I connect to my Vista machine using RDC, the client will
    sporadically just pause (or stall) for a while, and then "come back". Each
    time the delay varies anywhere from a few seconds to up to a minute. When it
    is stalled like this, the mouse works and I can minimize my remote session
    window, but I cannot do anything else. It's like the computer at the other
    end just freezes for a while and then comes back like nothing had ever
    happened. Has anyone else experienced this? Is there a solution? Thanks.

    I have the exact same problem on multiple machines. It seems to
    mostly happen when connecting to a Vista machine from a Vista
    machine. When connecting to a Vista machine from an XP machine, it
    seems to work better. FYI, the XP machine is using RDP 6 as well.

    Ok; I'm guessing this is happening even when your on the same network because if this is only happening over the internet the word is "Lag" and anything over the internet is subject to it. First thing I'd try is lower the Experence Settings on the RDP client, Hard coding the NIC and the switch port to 100 Full or whatever then are. Might want to run Perfmon just to check if RAM is maxing out.

    Re: Problems with Vista Remote Desktop

    I see no difference connecting from a Xp or Vista machine.
    I believe the problem is in Vista RDC, because if I connect to my work
    machine (with XP and Vista in dual boot) when in Vista I just can't work on
    it, otherwhise if it's in XP it works just fine.
    FYI: I'm connecting to work via Open VPN and have no problem connectng with
    other machines (XP or Server 2003) only to my Vista Business machines.

    I've tried from 2 machines at home through the same internet connection, 1
    in Vista Biz and the other in XP tablet SP2, and there is no difference -
    just can't work.

    Is it possible that no one but only 3 or 4 people have this problem ??

    Can you try to follow the instructions listed in the article here:
    http://blog.tmcnet.com/blog/tom-keat...lem-solved.asp,
    specifically, these instructions from that article may help:

    Here is what you need to do if you have the same issue:

    - Run a command prompt (cmd.exe) as an Administrator
    - Type: netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled

    If you want to to re-enable it:
    - Type: netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=normal

    In some cases you may need to use this command in addition to the above,
    but I didn't have to:
    - Type: netsh interface tcp set global rss=disabled

    Please write back to let us know if it works or not.

    If this works, can you please send me an offline email at "sfeng at
    microsoft dot com" as we are
    interested in knowing more detail about this issue, like the configuration,
    etc. Thanks.
