remote desktop connection with two onboard nics.

remote desktop connection with two onboard nics.

remote desktop connection with two onboard nics.

(OP)
I have a user computer that has a motherboard with two onboard nics on it. I could not get it to connect with remote desktop connection by IP or computer name until I disabled one of the onboard nics, even if the other onboard nic is not being used. It would keep locking up the computer that I was trying to connect to. I disabled the second onboard nic and now it will connect with remote desktop connection. But now when the user logs off of the remote desktop connection and comes back to her office and tries to log into the desktop it locks her computer up and  just goes to a black screen. She reboots the computer and is able to log in with no problems. I can't seem to find a solution for this. Has anybody ever had this problem before? The computer is a Dell Precision with a high end motherboard and cpu.  

RE: remote desktop connection with two onboard nics.

Do both nic's have static settings?  If so only one can have the default gateway.  When both nic's have the same gateway it will then cause conflicts resulting in no network connectivity.

No only one has a static setting the other nic is not used at all. Nothing is plugged into it. I do have the option of bridging those nics. I might try that next and see if it makes a difference. Thanks

RE: remote desktop connection with two onboard nics.

Well then just leave it disabled and all should be good.

in mstsc, go to options-advanced and unhook reconnect after disconnect

What actually fixed it was bridging both nics so it would show up as one nic.
Thanks for all the help.
