Popup error during Terminal Services session using RDP

Runing IVE 6.1R4. I have users coming in with RDP Terminal Services to their Desktops. A single user received a popup message from "Windows Terminal ServerProxy" saying "The Specified computer name contains invalid characters. Please verify the name and try again"

I did a google and found something old pertaining to a protected Hosts file on the PC but I tried to duplicate the problem on my own pc by locking the hosts file, but it still worked.

Anyone seen this before?

Thanks,

Tony

Re: Popup error during Terminal Services session using RDP

I believe I remember reading something about this message. If memory serves, the suggestion being that this was simply a misleading error. It may be that it is actually a problem resolving the hostname of the Terminal Services server. Perhaps this one user is having some DNS issues?
