[sc:windows-category ]Having converted all my VMWare VM’s to Hyper-V was a relatively smooth process and they have been working quite well over the last several months, however I have found a slight quirk and that I haven’t been able to track down yet.
When I’m off site, I use OpenVPN to connect in to my network and then often use a virtual PC running on Hyper-V to work with. This runs fine and under VMWare I could use the remote control application to place an Icon directly on my desktop to get to the Virtual system. I have setup a similar Icon with Hyper-V and have used it from within the network without issue.
However, I recently tried to connect to the system from a remote location after having connected to OpenVPN and found that after a few seconds, the connection failed with an RPC error.
Curious, I retried the connection from inside the network, using OpenVPN and everything worked fine.
The Hyper-V manager exhibited the same behaviour. Just using the standard RDP connection worked fine.
There must be something failing from the OpenVPN side, but I have yet to track down what it is.
