    Default Remote Administration Proggy

    I am looking for a freeware or open source program similar to visionapp or Royal TS (Remote Desktop Client | Royal TS).

    Been using the plain old remote desktop and it's getting pretty old typing out ip addys.

    Came here for help for certs so I figure you guys/gals have already been there, done that.

    What do all of you use?

    Are you using linux or windows? If windows, what version? Microsoft has a free mmc that has a simple rdp snap-in that let's you add hosts with options. I use it to connect to all my servers.

    If RDP works fine but you don't like typing out addys, make a custom MMC console with all your machines already in there, save it and use it over and over.

    start > run > mmc
    file > add remove snap in
    find remote desktop
    add computers
    file > save .msc file

    Edit: Yeah, what phoeneous said. Beat me by 2 mins

    Plus having that mmc is useful because you can add all your other snap-ins and then everything is in one window. I have AD, DNS, DHCP, and RDP in my mmc.

    Remote desktop if you want something built in to windows.

    LogMeIn free version if you want something better. I've used the free and several pro versions and have been happy with them.

    This isnt freeware but I have been very pleased with the program (maybe not QUITE so much the developers/customer service, but what can ya do).

    Radmin

    It's one of the only solutions i found that supports multiple monitors, and we have some users that have 4 screens in our environment.
