    So I have a desktop with Windows 7 and a server with win server 2008r2.

    I have remote desktop setup with the username and password to connect to the server. Everytime it says something like authentication failed or something similar with the saved password, but if I type in the same password again, it works and connects.

    I tried turning windows firewall off, changing the password, deleting the saved RDP icon and making a new one with the saved password, and a few other things. Any idea on how to fix this?
