FIPS and Remote Desktop Connection failures on Windows workstations RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've currently enabled FIPS compliant algorithims on my network.  All of our machines are running the highest levels of remote desktop connection.  This seems to be fine on the servers but when trying to remote into any clients mainly (using Windows XP but I also so this behavior on Windows 7 as well) it fails.  I've done all the testing and I can isolate it specifically to the FIPS enabled policy.  What can I do to get remote desktop functional again on my clients?  So far the only thing working is temporarily disabling FIPS and then I can remote back into the machines again?  I would really like to keep FIPS enabled for its enhanced security but if it's going to inhibit remote desktop it's going to be a major problem.  Thanks in advance to anyone who can solve this!
