Original title : Remote Desktop Connection problem message "your remote desktop connection failed because the remote computer cannot be authenticated"
Can anybody help?
A few weeks ago Remote Desktop Connection was working find. Other people can connect to this remote server. But I cannot connect to this or any other Remote Desktop - so it is something that happened to my windows 7 settings.
I get the message: "remote desktop connection failed because the remote computer cannot be authenticated" and "your computer's settings do not allow connection to this remote computer because it cannot be identified".
On this MS diagnostic page:
It talks about changing the Remote Desktop Connection's Options - Advanced tab and the Server Authentication - If server authentication fails. But this setting is not enabled so I cannot change it.
I have tried changing the group policy setting for "configure server authentication for client" to allow always connect but this does not seem to allow me to connect.
Nothing seems to work. How can I enable the "If server authentication fails" to allow always connect?
Thanks in advance for your help.
