Just FYI -
An oddball thing that I encountered today.
I had a user using Remote Web Workplace on a Windows 2003 Server to connect to a Windows XP box behind the firewall. The user was using IE8 on a Windows 7 box. The default options were chosen to connect Full Screen to the remote PC.
The connection was established appropriately except that the screen resolution was always off, forcing vertical and horizontal scroll bars. I couldn’t figure out why it wasn’t scaling the resolution correctly; it was always taking the next highest resolution up. It was very odd.
Finally, I figured out that his browser’s zoom control (IE8) was set to 75-percent. When I set the zoom control to 100-percent, the scaling must have been communicated accurately through the RDC ActiveX control, and the problem went away: I got a perfectly scaled screen with no scroll bars.
That one took me a little while to figure out. Just FYI to anybody out there who encounters something similar.
