Call up the IT guy and discuss it more but why not just reboot? You did write "But I can't login again (remotely) until the machine is rebooted."
At least that works and what else you can do is stop running on battery power. "sometimes my laptop battery goes dead, I drop my wi-fi." reminds me of the doctor that is told "Doc, it hurts when I do this."
Doc sez "Don't do that."
Hello Forum members,
For work, I connect to our company's network through Cisco VPN. The problem that I am having is that I can connect to my Windows XP machine just fine (Remote Desktop), but if I lose my Internet connection for any reason, when I try to re-login to my XP box after re-establishing VPN connection, I put in my User/Pass/Domain and after I click OK, the login screen just gets stuck at the 'Log On to Windows' screen. I doesn't 'Freeze', as I can cancel just fine. But I can't login again (remotely) until the machine is rebooted.
I spoke with our IT dept. and their response was to only disconnect Remote Desktop from the start menu.... That does partially solve the problem. But sometimes my laptop battery goes dead, I drop my wi-fi.
Has anyone experienced this behavior? Is there a patch, group policy setting, VPN config setting that will let me RDC after an unclean disconnect from the network/XP box?
Thanks in advance for advice.
