Windows Remote Desktop Protocol

Windows Remote Desktop allows administrators and developers to access their Windows servers with a graphical user interface (GUI).  Its full name is Remote Desktop Protocol or RDP.  When logging into a server via RDP, the user gains direct access to the desktop and can control the server the same way that they would if there were physically at the terminal.  The client software is available on most versions of Windows, Linux, and Mac OS.  It is also available on most mobile operating systems including Android and iOS.

Remote Desktop Protocol includes several important features to manage your server.  Two of these include printer redirection and file system redirection.  While working on your server remotely, you will be able to [print from your remote server to your local printer when this feature is enabled.  File system redirection is where the remote server’s hard drives will temporarily be accessible from your local machine.  Files can be moved securely from one machine to the other over RDP when this feature is enabled.

If you are on a weak Internet connection and your RDP session appears slow, you can simply turn the graphics and color to a lower bit rate, turn off the desktop background on the remote computer, and disable audio redirection which will all reduce bandwidth.  This is especially helpful when you are using your mobile phone to tether your Internet connection where you need to use a laptop to remotely access your server.

Managing your SingleHop server with Windows Remote Desktop is easy and secure.  If you have questions or are new to Remote Desktop, talk to a sales consultant today to find out how easy it is to control your server and grow your business.
