    Hi,

    I’m trialing 2x load balancing software at the moment for my three terminal servers. My setup is that I have an entry on the s10 that points to the gateway and it then picks the best server.

    However, it doesn’t reconnect to an existing server session if they were previously logged onto a different server. The reason it does this is because the s10 needs to send then user name when it contacts the 2x gateway.

    How can I get it to do this? I have several RDP options as it is for various users so Is there a way I can make someone enter a user id before they can connect to the load balancing RDP session?

    Appreciate any info. I have also got a ticket raised with 2x support but thought I might be able to work around this myself.

    Cheers

    Nathan.

    2X needs a feature which is only available in RDP 6. Therefore currently WTOS will not work.

    Dam. So are you saying, even if I did force them to enter a user id before the winterm logs on, that ID still would populate as the user id in the rdp connection properties.

    What does RDP6 do differently that would enable this to work?

    It’s a shame as the 2x software is really easy to use and maintain.

    AFAIK it needs the NLA feature.

    Ok, thanks for the info. I’ve taken a different approach, people now have to log off if they want to go somewhere else and the disconnected sessions are set to terminate after 15 mins.

    Not perfect but it’ll do.
