    Remote Desktop Connection Runs Like Turtle

    I have used Remote Desktop Connection in Windows XP to connect to my work
    network running Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition with RSA SecurID without
    problem. Recently I purchased a laptop running Windows Vista. Now when I
    connect everything starts out fine. The program connects to the server and
    the login and verification proceed without a hitch. As soon as the
    connection is complete, however, it runs like a slow turtle. It takes
    forever for the remot workspace to load and several miniutes for it to
    respond to even a simple mouse click. Eventually, all communications just
    cease. Task manager says remote Desktop Connection is running normally and
    the window can be moved, resized, etc., but the workspace doesn't respond and
    there is no communication on the network. The problem isn't in either my
    network or my work network as my XP machine still works fine.

    How can I fix 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.
