It sounds like the RDP server is rejecting the connection outright.
Normally this means that the authentication settings or credentials
are incorrect. More on this below.

That exception in catalina.out can be safely ignored. It's only being
logged as such because debug-level logging is enabled, and exceptions
are indeed thrown when the socket is closed.

That would indeed be suggestion, as well... but if you've already done
so, there must be a different reason.

Is your RDP server perhaps configured to require NLA?
