Updating remote desktop
Interested in more information about the tool and the opportunity to test it out? I've used MRD for a long time at work to access all kinds of Microsoft systems both desktops and servers.The server will automatically create a self-signed certificate to encrypt the connection and the Remote Desktop Connection client will show a certificate error due to the untrusted CA.I have a CA signed certificate issued to the FQDN of this server and valid for server authentication (I’m using it for MSSQL Server remote access). All tutorials (like this question) I’ve found so far describe the process for the Remote Desktop Services or Terminal Service. to set the certificate thumbprint value should work without any additional feature installation.I have found this question stating a command to set a certificate, but I don't want to try setting some values when I don't know what exactly I'm doing. I asked and answered a similar question here with a little more detail.
Nothing changed on my Mac, just a new version of this tool that says "bug fixes" for release notes.What you might be missing from those guides is the tools to administer the service - you'll want to install the role administration tools for Remote Desktop Services to be able to manage the service.I like to use Remote Desktop Connection Manager to manage all the different remote connections I work with.Recently I needed to change the passwords for several of my logon credentials in order to avoid having to type the password manually every time I tried to connect to the servers. This approach does also work if the password is not set and you want to set it.For me, the passwords were empty after moving the .rdg-file to a new environment, as the passwords are not stored in the file itself.
I gave this 2 stars because even with these flaws it is still better than the RDP client in windows which makes absolutely 0 sense.
