After you install Windows 2000 Security Rollup Package 1
(SRP1), Terminal Services clients may not be able to connect to the Terminal
Services server. You may also experience this problem when you use Remote
Desktop Web Connection on a Windows XP Professional computer to connect to a
Terminal Services server. When this problem occurs, event ID 50 is recorded in
the system event log:
Event Type: Error
Event ID: 50
The RDP protocol
component "DATA ENCRYPTION" detected an error in the protocol stream and has
disconnected the client.

The Terminal Services client may also receive the
following error message during a connection attempt:
terminal Server has ended the connection.
A potential race condition between the Icaapi.dll and
Rdpwsx.dll dynamic-link libraries (DLLs) may cause the private certificate key
on the Terminal Services server not to be synchronized.
