comment How do I view a trusted certificate in the Remote Desktop Connection client?
I don't understand why Kerberos authentication was used if the client and server are not in the same domain.

comment How do I view a trusted certificate in the Remote Desktop Connection client?
In my initial tests, I was using a non-domain client PC that was physically on the same subnet as the server. Clicking the padlock icon indicated that authentication was by kerberos. I just did another test from a client PC in a remote network, and the padlock icon indicated that authentication was by server certificate, and gave the option to view the certificate. So now the question: why was it authenticating by kerberos the first time and not by server certificate?

I did see some things in event viewer, but nothing that really helped. I assume that certs are only cached in memory for the duration of the session, not written to storage.

comment How do I view a trusted certificate in the Remote Desktop Connection client?
I found a workaround for what I needed to do... connect to the server by IP address rather than name. This forces the error message to appear, where I can click to view the certificate. However, it really doesn't answer the question of how to view the certificate when it's valid for the server named in the connection.

The server in question is in an Active Directory domain. The client PC is not joined to the domain, and has not imported the certificate. The server has supposedly been configured with an SSL certificate from a third-party certification authority, not the Windows CA in the domain. I need to verify which certificate is actually being used.

comment Confused about entry in windows route table
When you say you have "have another subnet defined in my router," are the subnets on separate interfaces of the router?

Two other options are to see if there is a firmware update for your copier that supports SMB3, or to change from using SMB to FTP.
