Windows Terminal Services Client

Posted on November 5th, 2006.

My friend Dudu Shmaya uploaded to CodePlex a utility that he and I developed together (He did most of the work, I only did the hacks that made it work just a little better..;-))

The project is a multi-tab terminal services (RDP) client that is very simple yet powerful (That’s a standard line in marketing brochures for utilities).

Highlights:

  1. Intuitive and simple UI.
  2. Manage all your connections in a single location.
  3. Allows you to define a group of connections, so you can easily connect to multiple sessions in a click.
  4. Grab Input – when you click inside a terminal window, all input is automatically redirected to that terminal, so key like ALT+TAB and the “Windows” key work as expected. Click anywhere outside the terminal window to return the control to the host (If you’re a VMWare user – you know how this feature works).
  5. Supports command line parameters to directly open a connection when it starts.
  6. Supports a Full Screen mode where the terminal window gets all the screen but moving the mouse to the upper part of the screen still shows the tabs toolbar.
  7. More to come soon..

By the way, If you’re using TFS, you might want to read Dudu’s blog. Don’t be fooled by the name of his blog, He’s actually a very smart guy – The name is just an internal joke.

Eyal,
I just found this project and it’s exactly the kind of thing I’ve been wanting kudos!

I prefer Royal TS from code4ward (http://www.code4ward.net ). It’s shareware but nice and stable. If you just need to manage RDP connections, Royal TS is one of the best out there!

I am curious to know if this Windows Terminal Services Client supports internet connection via a proxy server in the client side. As I know MS RDP client does not support that. But in reality, some companies access internet through a proxy server; in such situation, if a client try to connect to a remote desktop located outside of the company, RDP will never work. I am not sure if this utility can resolve this problem.

Please let me know.
Thanks,
- Jim
