So Windows Vista has been released and though it is working fine, there are still a few very minor blips. Nothing major, but just a couple small things that bug me, here’s one for ya. I recently installed Windows Vista, and now anytime I connect to a remote computer via a Remote Desktop Connection, I get the following message:
Remote Desktop cannot verify the identity of the computer you want to connect to. This problem can occur if:
- The remote computer is running a version of Windows that is earlier than Windows Vista.
- The remote computer is configured to support only the RDP security layer.
Contact your network administrator or the owner of the remote computer for assistance.
Do you want to connect anyway?
Is there anyway to disable this screen and just connect immediately?
This prompt screen can be bypassed as follows: Go to the advanced tab and select “always connect, even if authentication fails” in the drop down.
