I was having difficulty after the Vista Business upgrade connecting to clients via RDP. I’m doing a lot of work these days from home. The setup is typical, using the RDP ActiveX control to connect to a remote machine. This didn’t work, however, in Vista. Instead, the page would slowly draw and eventually crash.
The solution was found! Thanks to this post. I have no idea what these two little commands do, but it worked like a charm.
netsh interface tcp set global rss=disabled
netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled
