Microsoft RDP Client connection issues to GCCH VDI

Matthew A. Titcombe 1 Reputation point

I cannot get my RDP client to authenticate to a GCHH enclave. It starts out authenticating okay but seems to default back to a commercial account and then fails.

    Few suggestion you can try:

    You can try remove or unsubscribe all the the connections and re-add.

    To avoid version issues of RDP client, I would recommend downloading the RDP app from and not from the store.

    I would also request to verify the required URL list if it's not getting to GCCH (

    In case if wrong credentials are entered into the client which might have got cached. This might have created an authentication loop.
    just to rule out this, completely remove the client and re-install and login with the correct credentials at the start.

    Hope that helps.
