    Angry RDP Initiating Remote Connection SLOW!!!!

    Hi All,

    Strange question but one that is doing my head in at the moment!

    Every time I RDP to 2003 server, XP Pro, Windows 7, Windows 8 host on our LAN RDP seems to hang for ages saying "initiating remote connection" at first I suspected this could be a DNS issues although Im informed that this is not the case as stale DNS records for my machine have been removed. However there only seems to be me with this issues (Windows 7 Pro host).

    Any suggestions welcome?

    Cheers

    Matt

    In the local resources tab uncheck the printers tab and see if that makes a difference also try it on a machine without the firewall on see if that makes any difference.

    Tried this earlier as in the past there have been issues with previous versions of RDP and the mapping of printer drivers but still having the problem.

    I assume you have tried multiple hosts?

    Have you seen the reg key disablerootautoupdate? Google it.. It speeds up rdp connections considerably Well initiating connection that is from a win 7 host.
    I have the reg file if you want it

    If it's just you with the problem there are several possibilities -

    Something specific with your workstation. Logon as someone else and re-try RDP. If the problem's still there re-image your workstation if possible.

    When you logon to another workstation, does the problem follow you around? If yes, it could well be a profile issue. Allocate yourself a new local or roaming profile.

    Hi Guys, tried the registry key fix which didn't resolve the the issue as well as creating a new user profile. This issue is also present using a different accounts both domain user and domain admin.

    my first thought is try an alternative RDP client first to see if that sorts out the problem ( royal tS , remote desktop connection manager)
    next i would rest all the options back to default on mstsc (in the advanced tab, connect from anywhere), make sure do not use an RD gateway is set.
    Next i would run some networking tests ( are you on wifi or LAN)? ping , traceroute
