Ticket #1147 (closed defect: invalid)
Not possible to get a reliable RDP connection (ubuntu amd64 7.10)

My serup is the following:
Server: AMD Athlon 64 X2, 4800+ (RAID1), an ubuntu AMD64 7.10 host to a Windows XP Home SP2 OS. Workstation: AMD64 Turion 64, ubuntu 7.10 AMD64 desktop using a wireless g connection (and believe me: this wireless is stable :-)).
I use VNC connections to the server a lot and this always works without a glitch.
After installing virtualbox 1.5.4 (non-OSE version) with a Windows XP VM I am having trouble getting a reliable RDP connection to the windows VM (yes, it is enabled from the gui).
I have used the following clients: Gnome RDP, rdesktop from the commandline and kdrc and all of them show the same result: either closing the connection right away, only showing the first screen without updating it (after reconnection the updated screen is shown) or working correctly for 1 minute (showing garbled areas in the screen).
The fact that sometimes I do get a screen is telling me I have setup the ports and stuff right. What can be the issue here? Is RDP not that stable or is some common part of all the clients I use unstable?
