Mac remote desktop connection cannot verify the identity of the computer

If you are having an issue getting remote desktop to connect to a windows server via rdp it is probably due to the domain field in the connection having information entered. For some reason the rdp that mac uses even though it is written by microsoft doesn’t support the domain field.

To fix this issue you need to browse to /user/{username}/Documents/RDC Connections and delete the default.rdp file.

Once you have done this connect to the machine but don’t enter anything into the domain field to connect to the terminal server.
