When I try to connect to the Windows Server 2008 SP 2, the connection is immediately disconnected with an "internal license error". Maybe this is part of the lacking RDP 6 support in rdesktop? If I remeber correctly, this worked well with the pre-SP2 version of Windows Server 2008.

  • This only solves the issue temporarily for me. On next reconnect I get the same error again and have to wipe the license file again. Also it's not possible to drop back to RDPv4 as then the error is:
