unable to take remote desktop to win 2008 SBS Server from XP client

Answers

  • Okay, it sounds like you have enabled the server for remote access, but it sounds like you selected the option with the highest level of security - RDP with NLA.  There are two ways to address this.  First, you can go into your server and specify that you will accept any RDP client (less secure than RDP with NLA).  Second, you could go to http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/925876 to download the latest RDP client for your XP clients.  Vista already has RDP 6.0 built-in, so that is most likely why you are able to get in with your Vista clients.

  • Have you enabled Remote Desktop for Administraton? 

     

    Control Panel / System and Maintenance / System

    On the System windows, select the Remote tab.

     

    You have three options on how to connect - don't, any version of RDP, or RDP with NLA.

     

    RDP with NLA is the most secure and is available with the latest RDP clients.  If you are using an earlier RDP client, you should either download the latest or select any version.

  • if we take remote desktop from Vista client then we are able to take it without any prolem and it directly shows the desktop of the server. on same state if we take RDP from xp client then it goes upto 2008 password screen then if we put password of the server administrator it shows wrong password.
