RDP issue solved itself; research list to see what might be involved

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/08/29

Recently, I got the below message when trying to MSTSC into a RDP targeting a Windows 7 machine having multiple NICs.

Remote Desktop Connection
Your computer could not connect to another console session on the remote computer because you already have a console session in progress.
OK Help

I was connecting from a WAN. The Windows 7 machine is connected on two different subnets through port forwarding.

The above message was only on one on one WAN connection. When I tried the other, I could connect immediately. After that, I could connect through the other WAN connection as well.

I’m not sure what caused it, but I suspect the port forwarding, though that has worked in the past and now works without any change.

Still a couple of links, just in case it happens again:
