RDP connection doesn't work in Windows 8.1. I can't connect remote server under Windows Server 2008 R2. RRS feed

  • Question

  • It always shows the error "because of protocol error this session will be disconnected".

    How can I resolve this?

    By the way, I already tried to uncheck Visual Styles and check/uncheck Persistent bitmap caching in RDP client properties. It doesn't work.

    I also tried changing group policies in Windows Server 2008 by enabling RDP compression. It doesn't work too.

  • 1.) Can you remote into any other machine using your app?

    2.) Can you remote into the problem machine using regular means - mstsc.exe?

  • Hello.

    Thanks for your reply.

    1.I didn't try to remote any other machine since I have only one working server. But I connect successfully from other PCs to the same server.

    2. The same problem.

    I have 2 external IP addresses on the server. Remote Desktop connection is available for both of them. Could it be a reason?

  • So how to fix it? Remote Desktop in Windows 8.1 works not correct!
    It's unbelievable, I can remote my server from Mac but I can't do it from Windows 8.1.

  • Have you tried using the remote desktop app container sample: https://code.msdn.microsoft.com/Remote-Desktop-app-461567af ? Does that work?

    Have you tried using the Remote Desktop app: http://apps.microsoft.com/windows/en-us/app/remote-desktop/051f560e-5e9b-4dad-8b2e-fa5e0b05a480

    Does either of them work?

    Testing the above will tell you whether it is a programming error or an environmental issue.

  • Just wanted to say that it worked fine after I restarted the server. New Windows Update installed or smth else helped I don't know exactly.
