Fix for Remote Desktop connection (through SSH tunnel) stuck in “Welcome” screen.

Hi, this is how you can fix the issue with Remote Desktop connection (through SSH tunnel) stuck in “Welcome” screen.

Recently I’ve encountered a problem with Remote Desktop connection where I wasn’t able to connect to Windows 2008 server using RDP over SSH tunnel.
This is how I’ve fixed it.

On my Windows 2008 server machine I went to Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration:

Then, made sure that in my RDP-Tcp connection setting and its setting for ‘Restrict each user to a single session’ is switched to ‘NO’:

That did the trick. Let me know if it helped you.
