I've made my own Socket-based version of Client-Server Remote Desktop application in Java. It works OK with performance comparable to Win7 native RD client. But, there is a problem. My Java RD client can't receive desktop screenshots from server until I connect to the remote machine using Win7 native RD client. Only in that case my Java RD server starts to send desktop screenshots. If I close native Win7 RD client, my server continues to run (accept new connections etc.), but sends empty (black) screenshots to clients.

I have tried jrDesktop application ( and it behaves exactly the same, either on Win7 or on WinXP.

How can I resolve this issue?

Note that I have asked the same question at the stackoverflow and got no answer at all.
