Network Level Authentication is an authentication method that can be used to enhance Remote Desktop Services Session Host server security by requiring that the user be authenticated to the RD Session Host server before a session is created.
Network Level Authentication completes user authentication before you establish a remote desktop connection and the logon screen appears. This is a more secure authentication method that can help protect the remote computer from malicious users and malicious software.Watch movie online The Transporter Refueled (2015)
Network Level Authentication will disconnect XP SP3 Remote Desktop Connection with the following error message
The remote computer requires Network Level Authentication, which your computer does not support.For assistance, contact your administrator to technical support.
To enable Network Level Authentication on a XP SP3 client some registry settings must added which can be found in KB951608
The registry settings were tested using the Registration Entries (.reg) file below.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlLsa] "Security Packages"=hex(7):6b,00,65,00,72,00,62,00,65,00,72,00,6f,00,73,00,00, 00,6d,00,73,00,76,00,31,00,5f,00,30,00,00,00,73,00,63,00,68,00,61,00,6e,00, 6e,00,65,00,6c,00,00,00,77,00,64,00,69,00,67,00,65,00,73,00,74,00,00,00,74, 00,73,00,70,00,6b,00,67,00,00,00,00,00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlSecurityProviders] "SecurityProviders"="credssp.dll"
So after adding the registry settings and rebooting the workstation the following error message may appear if you connect to the Remote Desktop Services Session Host using an IP address, the error should not appear if you use the hostname of the remote computer.
An authentication error has occurred (0x80090303)
