Vista client using RWW to a Windows 2000 Terminal Server

Ran into a little quirk with a Windows Vista client that was connecting to a Windows 2000 terminal server through Remote Web Workplace. The Vista client kept getting an error that “The remote computer disconnected the session because of an error in the licensing protocol. Please try connecting to the remote computer again or contact your server administrator.” No errors showed up on the terminal server or on the SBS box (which runs the licensing server.)

Error Message

After some digging around found the solution. Because of the security setting of IE 7 on Vista, you need to add the RWW site to the Trusted Sites in Internet Explorer in order for it to allow the connection. Not sure why the error message says what it does as it really doesn’t seem to point to the actual problem!
