Unable to connect to Windows 7 SP1 client on a SBS 2011 Standard or SBS 2011 Essentials domain after it has been updated with RDP 8 update – The Windows Server Essentials and Small Business Server Blog – Site Home – TechNet Blogs:
Dear Microsoft. If you want us to use all this newfangled technology, it would help if you put all the steps together in one place. There’s no place I can find RemoteFX for 2012 in it’s entirety explained.
I had got a video card. I had installed the remote desktop role in order to fully support the RemoteFX stuff (2008 r2 is documented, 2012 is not). I had set up the Windows 7 (Multipoint can’t support RemoteFX). But I kept hitting the wall where when I’d go to remote into the box it would fail and I couldn’t figure out why.
And when you get to this part — where there’s a special firewall rule that has to be enabled – it took me finding a Home server forum where the poor guy disabled the firewall to hit the eureka moment of remembering that there’s a very specific remotefx rdp in rule in the firewalls.
Enable that…. and there we go, I can now have a Virtual Win8 or Win7 with RemoteFX enabled.
