Hello all,

I have Ubuntu 8.10 installed on my laptop at work. When I first installed it, I could connect to our Win 2000/2003 servers with Terminal Server Client. However now when I connect, or should say try to connect with TSC, I get a message "Connection dropped (or refused can't remember which) by host".

I can connect to the same server with a windows box though.

Any ideas?

Are you using RDP or VNC? Is there any delay before it crashes out with the connection error?

Could be MTU settings. Let's start with the above first and I will go from there. I had similar issues in the past. It was related to MTU settings, which you can change via the Network Connections under the System->Preferences menu

Am using RDP.

MTU is currently set to automatic.

When I click Connect, the window goes away, and the windows that *should* be the server I want to admin flashes for a split second before it goes away and the error window comes up.

What did you change your MTU settings to? Mine are currently set to automatic.
