Remote Desktop Login troubles with Windows SBS 2003 and XP

Hello,

For several months after some unknown hotfix I have been unable to connect
directly to my server with the remote desktop. I can connect to the server,
but after I login it logs me right out and the logs show nothing other than
the login/logout activity.

Initially this effected all of my workstations as well but I discovered if I
logged into the workstation locally first, then I could remote into it
successfully (which kind of defeats the purpose of working remotely).
Eventually the workstation problem went away (probably after another unknown
hotfix).

Currently I can only login to my server remotely by first connecting to
https://server/remote, selecting my server, and then make sure to select the
optional settings of "Log on to or resume the console session of the remote
computer". While I can live with this workaround, it's kind of a pain and I
wish it would work like it originally did....

Any thoughts?

Many Thanks,

Grant
