Attack Computer Wiz

A Security & Technology Weblog

Starting with Windows Server 2016 and also in 2019, an out of the box build will often display the following error when trying to initial a Remote Desktop Connection.

"The connection cannot proceed because authentication is not enabled and the remote computer requires that authentication be enabled to connect."

To make this error go away, perform the following steps:

  1. Open "regedit"
  2. Go to: 
  3. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\WinStations\RDP-Tcp
  4. Set “SecurityLayer” to a "zero"
