Re: But only if the setting is set
Actually, I think this is going to cause problems, specifically with legacy systems.
I assume the RDP client/server for versions of Windows prior to 7/2008, won't get updated. So if I'm running an XP/2003 VM, will the updated RDP client connect to it? my reading of the CVE implies not.
However, if I'm running a pre- 7/2008 client system (eg. XP) then I can set a flag on the 7/2008+ updated server to permit these legacy clients to connect.
Aside: I'm not interested in the pro's and con's of running legacy systems, just that for various reasons people do. I also fully understand why MS no longer publicly support EoL products. However, those of us working in the everyday world have to work with and around these constraints.
