Geeks With Blogs

So we all know that vista has a new TCP/IP Stack. Oh you don't? Well welcome to bleeding edge I guess. No time to talk about that it will beĀ  another blog article I am sure. Moving fast forward to the topic.

I have and will be RDPing (sounds weird and gross right?) into my windows 2003 serverĀ  for work and such(until the windows 2008 server rollout at least(yes I am a beta tester but that has nothing to do with this article either.

First Step:

Turn off Cleartype fonts on windows 2003 server.

Next Step:

In Vista: Open up an administrative Command Window (right-click, Run as administrator), and type in the following command:

netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled

You may also need to type in:

netsh interface tcp set global rss=disabled

The changes take effect straight away, with no reboot needed. Bear in mind that this is a global change, so it may really be worth your while to sit down and nut through your network's QoS settings to get things running happily without disabling auto-tuning.

Also remember if you run into issues please don't blame me.
