Next time, please *attach* this, donât paste it inline.

You say you disabled the firewall on the machine youâre working with, but have you disabled the firewall on the TS host, too?

Truncated SSH sessions feel like some sort of security thingy to me.

I donât see 544 in there, so this must not be an admin shell.  I believe you need to run ssh-host-config as admin for it to do its work correctly.  Without those privileges, it canât set sshd up to run as admin but drop privileges to the logged-in user when accepting connections.
