Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 The remote computer requires network level authentication


Today while  accessing my new Windows Server 2012 Server virtual machine  I have got below error saying
"The remote computer requires Network level authentication which your computer does not support"

You can use below workaround to fix the issue if you are geeting above error while doing remote desktop to Windows 8, Windows 8.1 & Windows Server 2012 & R2.
The solution is to disable "Allow Connection only from Computers running Remote Desktop with Network Level Authentication (recommended)" on computer which you are going to access via Remote Desktop.

1. Go to Control Panel -> Syste, Security -> System -> Remote Settings

2. Uncheck "Allow Connection only from Computers running Remote Desktop with Network Level Authentication (recommended)" option and apply the settings.
