The remote computer cannot be authenticated due to problems with its security certificate

    Question

  • Hi

    I am new to Win Server 2008 and iv'e run into a problem.
    The main problem is that i can't find a way to resize the remote desktop window
    once iv'e logged into my VPS. (Google search not helping)

    So i thought i would login via remote desktop connection on my Laptop
    but when i try to setup a new connection WIN 7 i get:
    "The remote computer cannot be authenticated due to problems with its security certificate" 

    I followed these steps to try and fix problem:

    1. On the client computer, clickStart, in theSearch programs and filesbox, typeMMC and then press ENTER.
    2. ClickFile, and then clickAdd/Remove Snap-in.
    3. ClickCertificates, and then clickAdd.
    4. Select theComputer accountoption, and then clickNext.
    5. ClickFinish, and then clickOK.
    6. ExpandCertificates (Local Computer),and then clickTrusted Root Certification Authorities.
    7. Right-clickCertificates, point toAll Tasks, and then clickImport.
    8. On theWelcome to the Certificate Import Wizardpage, clickNext.
    9. In theFile namebox, type the path to the certificate, and then clickNext.
    10. Select thePlace all certificates in the following storeoption.
    11. Ensure that theCertificate storebox displaysTrusted Root Certification Authorities, and then clickNext.
    12. ClickFinish.

    I am stuck on Step 9 "type the path to the certificate"
    I don't know the path?
    Do i first have to install certificate on my VPS?

    Thanks in advance

  • Hi there,

     

    I'm almost certain that this has nothing to do with certificates. Instead try to run "mstsc" go to "Display" and try to change the resolution there.

    Hi Martin

    Thank you for taking the time to answer my question :)

    No that did not work.
    I log into my VPS via IE, then click on Remote Desktop in the Management Panel.
    Log into remote desktop and tried what you said but still the Window will not resize,
    will only minimize not expand.

    Like i said i'm a VPS newbie, normally use managed Linux hosting, i'm completely lost
    but trying to learn.

    I am willing to give my login details if someone is willing to take a look.

    Thanks
