Terminal Server Registry Keys and Values

Published in May 2005

The relevant configuration options for terminal servers, terminal server sessions, users, and RDP clients can be found in different places in the Windows Server 2003 registry. Administration tools and Group Policies usually change several registry values. This whitepaper provides you with information on their names, paths and default values.

NOTE: This whitepaper provides a general overview of those registry keys that are essential for Terminal Services. A full documentation of all relevant keys would probably be a book in its own right. However, if you know where to find the interesting locations, there is nothing to prevent you from doing your own experiments on a test system. Experiments have produced many tips for optimizing system performance by modifying the registry. However, it is clearly neither advisable nor recommended to tweak the registry settings on a production system.
