Fixing the Remote Desktop Connection to a Virtual Machine in Microsoft Azure

A few minutes before my second session at the Dutch Techdays started I tried connecting to my Virtual Machine in Microsoft Azure through remote desktop. It didn’t connect… The RDP client tried to connect to the Virtual Machine, but nothing happened. So I rebooted the VM and tried connecting again, confident that this would solve …

Meeting up with some smart people is also a good addition to attending the sessions. The most impressive session I …
