  • RemoteApp 'login attempt failed' on Win7

    We have setup Remote Desktop Services on a Windows 2008 R2 Server and everything works fine internally using the url localhost/rdweb. We are now testing the url externally. We can logon to the external url but when running the remoteapp on windows7 we get the error ' The login attempt failed' I have entered the username/password in correctly. But on windows XP we can run a remoteapp using remoteweb using the same username/password.
    Why does the remoteapp work on XP and not win7, any ideas?

    tried domain\username ?

      We tried domain\name without much success, we still get the error message.

      The two pc are external so won't be domain members.
