Select network detection on the server

This policy setting allows you to specify how the Remote Desktop Protocol will try to detect the network quality (bandwidth and latency). You can choose to disable Connect Time Detect Continuous Network Detect or both Connect Time Detect and Continuous Network Detect. If you disable Connect Time Detect Remote Desktop Protocol will not determine the network quality at the connect time and it will assume that all traffic to this server originates from a low-speed connection. If you disable Continuous Network Detect Remote Desktop Protocol will not try to adapt the remote user experience to varying network quality. If you disable Connect Time Detect and Continuous Network Detect Remote Desktop Protocol will not try to determine the network quality at the connect time; instead it will assume that all traffic to this server originates from a low-speed connection and it will not try to adapt the user experience to varying network quality. If you disable or do not configure this policy setting Remote Desktop Protocol will spend up to a few seconds trying to determine the network quality prior to the connection and it will continuously try to adapt the user experience to varying network quality.
