Great RDP Manager from Microsoft

Last week I noticed a unusual download at Microsoft.com called RDCman, it turned out to be a RDP manager.

I downloaded it and it does all what I want in a great RDP tool!

It supports import of serverlists, it support grouping and subgrouping, you can set configurations and passwords per group. You can autohide to connections list so you leverage all the real estate possible while the screen stays embedded.

You can connect using alternate credentials with console option on or off.

If your servers are numberd you can also create a general name of you servers with variable with numbers. Al great features if you need to manage many servers.

Oh and it is free too!

The strange thing is that it was version 2.2 and I never seen it before, als the about screen says nothing about Microsoft, just the author: Julian Burger. I assume this has been an internal tool for a while and now shared to the rest of the world. Thanks Julian!

 

Official description:

RDCMan manages multiple remote desktop connections. It is useful for managing server labs where you need regular access to each machine such as automated checkin systems and data centers. It is similar to the built-in MMC Remote Desktops snap-in, but more flexible <- That is an understatement!
