    Hi All,

    Anyone having difficulty using Microsoft Remote Desktop 8.0.32. Recently, updated on OS X 10.11.5 on a 2013 rMBP. I am unable to connect to a Microsoft Home Server version 1 machine. Getting a connection reset by peer error message. I am able to connect to server and access the drives directly.

    Interestingly enough, I am still able to connect to the Windows Home Server from an MBA also running OS X 10.11.5 but using Microsoft Remote Desktop 8.0.9.

    Does anyone have any thoughts as to what to try?

    Cheers,

    Don Barar

    More research indicated that 8.0.32 is not compatible with Windows Home Server Version 1 and 2. There may be other versions of Windows that 8.0.32 is not compatible.

    Solution was to go to Time Machine back-ups and restore version 8.0.31. After doing so, Microsoft Remote Desktop was able to connect to Windows Home Server version 1.0 machine.
