After trying multiple different configurations to isolate the problem stated above, my conclusion on this matter is that RDP on Windows 11 through a Wireguard tunnel, behaves differently in respect to Windows 10. The logs show that a UDP connection is established, related services are started succesfully and authentication succeeds, but after the client shows the first frame, services start disconnecting immediately. 

 

Please note that the same network configuration works on Windows 10 running inside a bridged VM on the same box. I assume there is a problem with the RemoteFX service, but further investigation is neccessary.
