RDP problems with slow connections Posted: Nov 7, 2007 10:31 PM
I've added couple of terminal services (RDP) resources to our VPN site so user can start RDP session just by clicking link. When user clicks link it loads and installs terminal client from ive.
If user with slow adsl connection (256kbits and maybe 512kbits too) opens RDP connection and in RDP sessions open web browser and surfs to some page which happens to have some ads or something else moving things, RDP sessions "hangs". All the bandwidth goes to updating that part of screen where ad or something similar moves and RDP session wont respond mouse or keyboard anymore. So user can just watch that ad, nothing else. This is not browser related problem because same thing happens if they use some application which has moving things etc.
If user closes RDP session, starts network connect and uses windows native rdp client through it, RDP session is a bit slow when ad does it things but session still responds to mouse and keyboard commands, so user can leave the page or close web browser or do things what he needs to do. So looks like problem is in dsTermServ.exe application.
Is there way to fix this or way to use native client directly when clicking terminal session link from ive portal?
Document Terminal Services execution says when native client exist and SSO is not enabled for resource it should use native client for connection. OK, in my case native client exist and SSO is not enabled but it still uses that dsTermServ.exe. Or is this just some kind of proxy? Is SSO for terminal session disabled just removing and variables from bookmark?
