I have used XP Pro's Remote Desktop Connection for about a year now to work
remotely from home. Both my home and Office PC's are XP Pro - fully patched.
I have a DSL line at home and connect to our company's network through their
VPN line. Then I take over my computer with Remote Desktop. Just recently I
started loosing the Remote Desktop connection (not the VPN connection) about
once or twice an hour. What could be causing this? I have made no changes to
either system. Thanks.

Stupid RDC host does not post a "In Use" on the Login Screen.

Were you activly interacting with the host when the connection was
lost?

What device manages the VPN connection at the host end?

Hi Steve:

It wouldn't be the wife or kids. I'm connecting to my office computer. I
dial into the network using a VPN connection and just lose the connection at
any time - sometimes in the middle of typing a word or sometimes it's while
the computer is inactive. I'm convinced the problem is with the remote
(home) computer. I recently did install MS updates to the computer for the
first time in a while. I was thinking it could be the security center or
firewall maybe, so I just yesterday didabled both and for the last hour I was
working I did not lose my connection. Only time will tell.

Sounds like I should "knock on wood" :) 

My XPro patches are up to date, but I only play "remote IT guy" for
short periods of time. Just long enough to monitor the status of A/V
updates and to apply patches.

Since you were active on the keyboard, it doesn't sound like a power
save mode kicked in.

Do you have UPS on both the computer and ALL the Network components?
A power blink might knock down the network, which will reconnect, but
the RDC might not recover.

I had the same problem. XP Pro as Clients, win 2003 as a Terminal Server.
Not all of the clients, just selected ones get droped frome time to time...
I am still looking for a solution.
