Windows CE 4.0 with Windows Server 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all!

    In my company, we have upgraded the Windows Server 2003 to Windows Server 2012 and we have some thin clients with an old version of RDP and they can't connect to the Server 2012 because when I does, I get this message: Because of a security error, the client could not connect to the remote computer. Verify that you are logged on to the network, and then try connecting again.

    Our thin clients are: Compaq Evo T30 and a Neoware CA19 and they have Windows CE 4.0 installed by default.

    Searching in internet, I've found this tutorial: http://www.hjgode.de/wp/2014/03/12/windows-server-2012-rds-and-windows-mobile-connection-error/ but I can't apply it to our server because we don't want to have less security.

    I've searched everything on internet to configure the Windows CE to be able to connect to our server 2012 but I can't find anything helpful :( Seriously, we don't want to apply the steps of the previous tutorial, we prefer buying new Thin Clients instead of doing that, but it will be better if there is a way to be able to connect to the server 2012 without changing anything in the server.

    Anyone can help me? Please, it's very important.

    Thanks in advance! :)

    I think that you have 3 options:

    1. Work with your Thin Client OEM to upgrade the OS - this seems rather unlikely, but worth a try.
    2. Make those changes to your server - seems like it puts the security back to where it was before the upgrade.
    3. Replace your Thin Clients, the OS is almost 16 years old which is great, but beginning to hold you back.
    4. Change the OS on the Thin Clients - this will take some Engineering which means time and cost.  But a quick search indicates that others have at least experimented with it.  I don't think that this is a good option.
