Hey guys I've got a question.

I've installed a server 2012 R2 hyper-v with a few VM's in them. One of them is a TS. My client is having issues with the TS because every now and then they get a popup from RDP that the connection is interrupted and that it will retry to setup the connection. This is visible for less then a second, but is very disruptive when working.

I've been doing some captures on the Hypervisor itself and am seeing a lot of RST, ACKs when the interruptions appear. The stream can be going for some time but they all end the same.

As you can see the connection is happily resumed after the reset.

Any idea what could be causing these resets? The capture is performed on the NIC that handles all VM traffic. The client I've been using to test is connected to the same switch as the Hyper-V server. The Hyper-V isn't using any teaming on the virtual nic.

I have same problem but with physical machines (no hyperv). The problem appear when the connection pass by a NetASQ Firewall. Have you any solution ?
