When we connect to Remote Desktop on Windows XP SP1 and SP2 we sometimes get timeouts during the login procedure.
The user enters the username and password and has to wait for a few minutes after which the connection is terminated. In the eventlog of the workstation the user tries to connect to nothing is logged.
The strange part about this is that sometimes it does work. It seems that for instance the amount of memory used by the loggedon user is determining the problem with the connection. If a user has a large picture as background this problem arises, and now we have users with 20 browser windows or X-Sessions to servers who have the same problem.
Is it possible to increase the timeout for the connection so more time is available to transfer the session? Or does someone know another solution?
