Curious if anyone else has seen this. I have a Windows 10 laptop. When out and about, I will occasionally remote desktop over 4G link to my home network, where I will connect to either a Win7 or Win10 box. The Win7 connection usually just works, but very often when the link gets very slow, the connection to my Win10 box just disconnects almost immediately after connecting. I've futzed with the "experience" settings in RDS to no avail. Wondering if anyone else has seen this?

If you're port forwarding through your home router, did you include UDP 3389 for the Windows 10 box in addition to TCP 3389?  I've seen some issues around slow connections with RDP when the UDP port isn't enabled on the newer OS'es.

Just as a suggestion, I'll put in my two cents worth on a somewhat related issue. First, what kobeckman said is quite valid, and should be done, as both protocols s/b forwarded.  On the other hand, have you tried using Remote Desktop Gateway (RDG) on top of RDP?  My wife and I run a background screening business, and travel frequently, hence we need to access our workstations remotely - we also use our 4G smart phones as mobile hotspots.  Our server is running 2012 R2, and the workstations are all up on Windows 10.  With RDP/RDG we consistently get very good speed with this, plus the added bonus of the data being encrypted (it uses port 443 instead of 3389).  It's relatively simple to implement (using Mark's book I was able to install the role and associated features, and get it working with minimal effort).  RDG uses the server as a gateway which allows you to log directly into any/all the domain joined workstations on your network.  Of course the speed is subject to the 4G signal strength.  Anything less than 3 bars makes remote access difficult if not impossible.

Hope this w/be helpful to you.
