one of my remote sites has 3 thin clinet pcs, they use RDP to connect to our terminal server.  unfortunately at the moment only one thin client can RDP at a time, the other two pop up the usual error with machine not found or network error blah blah blah...

i am using a linksys AG241 router.
i have found that putting in a cheap telecom D-Link that the issue goes away.
the only difference in rules that i can see is that the D-Link has a NAPT rule encapsulating the DHCP scope...

does anyone have any idea??

am i totaly off track??

Are all three thin clients issued valid DHCP licenses on the Linksys unit?

I presume from how you have described it that if you disconnect the connected thin client then one of the other two can then connect (eg its not a config issue specific to the other two thin clients)?

i ran some more tests...

i set all the thin clients to static ips and they all connected to the server and worked fine.  then i logged one of and restarted it and then it would not connect to the server.  i set it to DHCP and it connected again, back to the same static ip and it wouldnt.

i put all the pcs on DHCP and they all connected, logged off or restarted and and they wouldnt connect again.  renew with a different ip address and they would connect.
