I have an AWS EC2 running Windows Server 16.
For several years I have been accessing the running instance of this EC2 via RDP on my Windows 10 desktop - using the Windows shortcut created using “Download remote desktop file” as described in:
This connection method has worked reliably for all this time.
On this EC2 I have recently installed remote.it and set up a RDP server service.
On my Windows 10 desktop PC I have installed remote.it and set it up as an initiator.
When I launch remote.it on my Windows 10 desktop PC I can see the AWS EC2 RDP service.
When I try to launch this RDP service it is totally erratic - it sometimes works but, more commonly it fails with “Please wait for the Local Session Manager”.
However the Windows shortcut connection always works.
Any suggestions appreciated…
