Remote Desktop Manager ((EXCLUSIVE)) Download Free Free Version
The client area display depends on the node selected in the tree. If a server is selected, the client area shows the remote desktop client for that server. If a group is selected, the client area shows a thumbnail of the servers within that group. The size of the client area can be specified via the View menu, as well as resizing the RDCMan window. Use [View.Lock window size] to prevent the window from being resized by dragging the frame.

The top-level unit of organization in RDCMan is a remote desktop file group. File groups are collections of groups and/or servers that are stored in a single physical file. Servers can't live outside of a group and groups can't live outside of a file.
Many of the remote desktop hot keys are configurable. There is a limited mapping, however. For example if the default key is ALT-something, the replacement must also be ALT-something. To change a hot key, navigate to the text box for the hot key and press the new "something" key.
Show full screen connection barAuto-hide connection barWhen a server is displayed in full-screen mode, the remote desktop activeX control provides a UI connection bar at the top of the window. This bar can be toggled on and off. When it is on, you can choose to have it pinned or auto-hidden.
Use multiple monitors when necessaryBy default, a full screen session is restricted to the monitor containing the server window. You can enable multiple monitor spanning in the full screen options. If the remote desktop is larger than window's monitor, it will span as many monitors as needed to fit the remote session. Note that only rectangular areas are used, so if you have two monitors with differing vertical resolutions, the shorter of the two is used. Also, there is a hard limit of 4096x2048 for the remote desktop control.
Groups and Servers have a number of tabbed property pages with various customization options. Many of these pages are common to groups and servers. When the "Inherit from parent" check box is checked, the settings that follow are inherited from the parent container. Most server-related changes, e.g. remote desktop size, will not take effect until the next time that server is connected.
The size of the remote desktop is specified on this page. This is the logical desktop size, not the physical client view of it. For example, if the remote desktop size is 1280 x 1024 and client size is 1024 x 768, you would see a 1024 x 768 view of the remote desktop with scroll bars. If the client size were 1600 x 1200, the entire remote desktop would be visible, offset by a gray border.
Specifying "Same as client area" will make the remote desktop the same size as the RDCMan client panel, i.e. the RDCMan window client area excluding the server tree. Specifying "Full screen" will make the remote desktop the same size as the screen that the server is viewed on. Note that the remote desktop size is determined upon connecting to a server. Changing this setting for a connected server will have no effect.
The maximum size of the remote desktop is determined by the version of the remote desktop activeX control. Version 5 (pre-Vista) had a maximum of 1600 x 1200; Version 6 (Vista) has a maximum of 4096 x 2048. This limit is enforced at connection time, not during data entry. This is in case the same RDCMan file is shared by multiple computers.
Note that the account running RDCMan must have Query Information permissions on the remote server to list the sessions. Furthermore, the remote session must be directly reachable rather than via a gateway server. Disconnect and Logoff permissions must be granted to perform those operations. See msdn for more information on remote desktop permissions.
ManageEngine Endpoint Central is a unified endpoint management system that is able to remotely manage servers, desktops, and mobile devices. This system uses remote access to onboard and update devices and also supports users through remote control and remote desktop utilities.
Do you access remote computers regularly? If you look after multiple servers, keeping track of remote connections gets challenging as the number of your managed servers grows. Using a remote desktop connection manager can help you take back control of your remote desktops.
Every remote desktop manager needs some repository to save data like remote hosts, credentials, or configuration. In RDM, data repositories are called data sources. Data sources serve as the container of all the entries in RDM.
We all know that bad things happen, and the possibility of data loss is always there. Luckily, Devolutions offers a free online backup feature with RDM. The Online Backup automatically backs up the data from your data source to the Devolutions cloud.
If you decide to try out Devolutions RDM and are already using another remote desktop connection manager, you can import existing connections. For example, RDM supports importing sessions from various tools like those listed below.
Suppose you need to access information from a remote desktop, such as running services or the registry. RDM has built-in management tools for that, all located inside RDM, making admin tasks more manageable. With a single click, you can do the following actions.
Multi-Remote Next Generation or mRemoteNG is an open-source and free remote desktop connections manager. mRemoteNG carries features such as multi-tabbed connections and multi-protocol support. The supported protocols as of version 1.76.20 are:
mRemoteNG lets you create folders which is useful if you want to group remote connections. Putting remote connections in a folder helps you apply the same configuration, including credentials to all remote desktops.
There are only two display options to open remote desktop connections; tabbed and full screen. The screenshot below shows mRemoteNG with opened remote desktop connections in a tabbed view, for instance.
mRemoteNG uses a connection file in XML format to store all your remote desktop connections. The connection file is saved in the same folder as the mRemoteNG executable file by default. However, mRemoteNG does not restrict the location where you want to save the connection file.
Saved remote desktop connections use a folder tree structure. Remote desktops are called favorites, and groups are called folders. For instance, in the screenshot below, there is one folder named Lab and two remote desktop connections under it.
A potential issue that you may encounter is not being able to save passwords. RD Tabs respects the DisablePasswordSaving registry setting in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\Terminal Services. This policy means that you cannot save passwords when adding new remote desktop connections.
Remote Desktop has a built-in credential manager, which lets you save multiple credentials. When adding new remote connections, you are allowed to select a saved credential from a dropdown. Choosing from pre-saved credentials helps avoid login errors and account lockouts, as a result.
The second option is to open remote desktops in separate windows. Users accustomed to viewing multiple remote desktop windows, like side-by-side, would benefit from this display option. For example, the screenshot below shows the multiple windows remote desktop connections.
When backing up remote connections to a file, the Remote Desktop app does not include passwords for security. So restoring remote desktop connections from backup will not restore the associated credentials.
Another remote desktop connection manager that is compact, portable, and lightweight is MultiDesk. MultiDesk is a tabbed remote desktop manager that acts as a GUI frontend of the built-in Remote Desktop Connection Client (MSTSC).
After adding remote connections, there are two ways to open remote desktops; connecting to one remote desktop at a time or connecting to all remote desktops under a group. The screenshot below shows connecting to a group of remote desktops at once.
MultiDesk can display remote desktop connections in two ways; in tabs or full screen. In the tabbed view, the remote desktop connections are shown in separate tabs inside MultiDesk (refer to the screenshot below).
One thing lacking from MultiDesk is the ability to export and import connections from the main program. If you are concerned about losing your remote desktop connections, your workaround is to back up the file MultiDesk.xml.
Remote Desktop Manager Free is a tool which can manage different remote connections made with different protocols like TeamViewer, FTP, Telnet, Citrix, VNC and others.The program itself does not rely on a single protocol and therefore works with different types of connections. Within the program, you can add different profiles together with usernames and passwords where applicable.The interface of Remote Desktop Manager Free is pretty easy-to-understand thanks to its tabbed interface, allowing for connections to different networks. The navigation panel provides you a way to organize and sort all remote connection profiles.Adding new profiles is pretty simple and should include a name, group/folder, security and credential details, as well as the hostname. Remote Desktop Manager Free also includes a few different free network tools like WOL, TraceRoute, Ping, a Port Scanner and more.Overall, Remote Desktop Manager Free is a useful tool for managing remote connections and supports a number of different protocols.Features of Remote Desktop Manager FreeAbility to Automate Tasks
