ASA SSL VPN RDP connection keyboard language issue

Unanswered Question
Jan 31st, 2008

Hello, I'm configuring an ASA SSL VPN connection and I've published some RDP (terminal server) connections in it. That's ok, but when you connect to the terminal server the keyboard language appears in English. There is a parameter you can theoretically set another language, like this:

Rdp://<ip_address>/?Keymap=en-us, but if you put es-es or fr-fr it doesn't work, it only works with en-us (English- United States). Does anybody know how to change the keyboard configuration?

It's a very important issue; it has no sense to use an ASA for terminal server VPN's if you can not set the proper keyboard language.


I have this problem too.

The problem is related to either of these issues:

Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU)/Maximum Segment Size (MSS) size

Fragmentation policy during encryption

Perform a sniffer trace from the client to the server side in order to find out which is the best MTU to use.Continue to reduce the value of 1400 by 20 until there is a reply
