Windows 10 Remote Desktop – No Connection

Our Remote Desktop connection settings are applied with Group Policies, and have previously worked with Vista, Windows 7 & 8 clients. On the rollout of Windows 10 we were unable to access these clients.

On checking Inboard Rules of a Windows 10 client ‘Remote Desktop (TCP-In)’ had been renamed to ‘Remote Desktop – User Mode (TCP-In)’

Changes were also noticed to the ‘Programs and Services’ tab.

I created a new group policy for testing where a changed ‘Programs and Services’ tab > Programs > ‘This program’ from ‘System’ to ‘%SystemRoot%\system32\svchost.exe’. I also added termservice to ‘Programs and Services’ tab > Services > ‘Apply to service with this short name’
