Remote Desktop RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using Windows 7 Ultimate and connecting via remote desktop to a terminal server using Windows 2003 Server.  Only on the workstation using W7, when connected to the term server, when I am browsing the internet using IE8, i get "Because of an error in data encryption, this session will end".  Then my remote session ends and I have to reconnect.
