Slow RDP Sessions?

Slow RDP Sessions?

OK, this may not be an actual Linux problem, but I've dealt with it enough to decide to put it here in case you ever come across it.

Suffering from slow RDP sessions? The autotuning level on your machine may be the culprit. On later versions of Windows, it's set to configure huge packet sizes, which might cause grief, depending on your connection quality.

To alleviate the problems, try typing this line into the cmd prompt on a windows 7, 8, server 2008, or server 2012 machine:

netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=highlyrestricted

to revert back to normal setting, type:

netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=normal
