I have configured an Cisco asa runniing 8.03 with SDM 6.03. Using the SSL Clintless configuration. I have HTTP to other servers, but I cannot use RDP.

I have uploaded and installed the RDP plugin, and everything looks correct.

When I try to connect I can see that it runs somesort of java or activeX then tries to connect. But the connection seems to terminate and return you to the Post login page.

Does someone have any ideas what could be wrong?

Thnaks, will check this out. What I have found is that This problem only occurs when connected to the corporate lan/Proxy/firewall. We can use the same PC or PCs connected via the internet from a DSL Connection and everything works fine.

If you are trying to use Vista SP1 or XP SP3, this is a known issue that Microsoft turned off access to ActiveX RDP. You can look this up under the bug tracker with CSCso87985. Contact support for the latest file, it works fine.
