Folks – it’s been one of those weeks (I know it’s only Tues 🙂
I just got to a point where I was just opening up tooo many RDP connections, managing
them – some using Terminal Services Gateways, others not.
Configuring BTS boxes/SQL Servers/MOSS/Indexers/Search….. and the list goes on.
From client to client or even our network internally – my head was rapidly filling
up with these random ip addresses that I wished I didn’t have to remember.
So I wanted to have a way simply to manage all these windows (a crude version I wrote
some years back was simply to drop 6 RDP ActiveX controls onto a web page an knock
– to work on Vista and Win2008 as well as the other list of usual suspects.
– be able to set Terminal Services Gateway on some.
They panned out as follows:
Remote Desktops – found in Win2K3 Admin Tools SP1, which is OK as
it presents a simple tree view and you’re away.
Terminals (currently 1.7) – SENSATIONAL!!! I almost wanted to get
VNC etc just to use those bits.
It’s got – network tools, port scanners just absolutely brilliant, a well polished
application with a very very handy toolbar.
Only ONE problem for me……no TSG support 🙁 – forums
state this is planned….. 🙂
Check out TERMINALS HERE
Royal TS – Supports RDP Terminal Service Gateway Connections 🙂
So this one for the moment is one that I’m going with, just downloading .NET 3.5 SP1
as we speak and about to fire this up on Vista (x86).
Does a very good job at managing RDP connections, it doesn’t support any of the other
Check out Royal TS HERE
Terminals *would* be the one I’d go for if it supported TSG connections……have
to check back shortly.
