Remote desktop connection manager alternative

PiratePenguin 6,329 1,470 February 27, 2014 at 02:50 PM
I currently use remote desktop connection manager 2.2 and have a few issues with it. At times it can use nearly 1gb of ram and it often crashes with an exception.

Is there any alternative? I want nothing fancy just the ability to easily rdp to many servers in a single app that lets me switch between them easily.

My recommendation would go to Terminals: http://terminals.codeplex.com/
It supports a wide range of protocols which is extremely helpful (RDP, VNC, VMRC, SSH, Telnet, RAS, ICA Citrix, and web based viewers ). After over 8 years (it might be closer to 10) of active development it's a pretty stable polished piece of software.

This is another option but I haven't used it and I think terminals is better: http://www.hoowi.com/multidesk/

Thanks guys! much appreciated and repped. Both look good Ill try them out tomorrow.

This is for enterprise, not personal. I use putty for all the linux boxes without issue. Just need this tool for my windows servers.

I highly recommend ASG-Remote Desktop [visionapp.com], formerly known as visionapp remote desktop. Its basically Terminals on steroids. One of my favorite features is color coding of tabs. My network devices can be one color, linux one color, sites, one color, etc. It also can tie in to SQL so multiple users can share the same database that has all the credential sets and servers/network devices pre-populated. Ton of other awesome features you may find of interest too.

I presume you mean the Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection Manager? Or the open source version?

I was using the free version of Remote Desktop Manager [remotedesktopmanager.com] for a while and got my company to purchase the full version. Handles a lot of different connection options and can integrate with keepass.

Yes, a while ago. It's fine for basic use, but I needed more options like SSH, browser management pages, VNC, etc.
