Description: When connecting with
rdesktopto a windows box, no connection is established, but this error message displayed:
Failed to connect, CredSSP required by Server
Solution: There are two possible ways:
- Downgrade security on Windows server to accept SSL/TLSv2
- Make sure to initialize a kerberos ticket to be able to connect using CredSSP. There are a lot of guides out there how to do configure a linux kerberos client for Windows Active Directory.
Since I am too lazy for no. 2, this is how to downgrade a non-existing operating system security:
- Open System properties
- Chose the tab Remote
- Untick the option Allow connections only from computers running Remote Desktop with Network Level Authentication (recommended).
- Be happy.
