Register Remote Desktop Manager WhatchTutorial

Remote Desktop Manager for Mac runs under a 30 day trial. Refer to the procedure in Register Enterprise Edition, to register your license key. If you do decide not to register by the end of the 30 day trial, your data will not altered or erased, and you will have full access to it once you register a license. See Free Edition or Online Database to register one of those two license.

Choose your data source type


When choosing any data source type that is not on-premises, you need to think of the safety of the data at rest and during transport. we strongly recommend that you further encrypt your data by applying a Master key for file-based solutions, or a Security Provider for Advanced Data Sources. This will ensure that the data will be unreadable by no one but you.


Upon first launch, Remote Desktop Manager uses an SQLite data source. The data sources are elaborated further in the Data Sources overview topic, but for help in choosing the data source that is right for your requirements please see Choosing your data source (Teams).

Select your Security Provider

Select your security provider before importing or creating any data in your database; doing so ensure the protection of your entry configuration data, even when people have a direct access to your database.

Create your Default Settings

In File - Templates - Default Settings you will be able to create default settings template to create, edit or reset your default settings when a new entry is created. Each entry type is supported and can have a default template defined to fit your requirements.


Create Users


Remote Desktop Manager for Mac supports advanced user rights management. User accounts must be created manually by an administrator of the database.


Create Roles


Create Roles to easily mange your security system and then assign users to Roles, making it easy to grant permissions to a set of users instead of managing permissions individually.

Create Top Level Folders

Top level folders are the foundation of a solid security structure. Your folder structure should represent your company structure. For example, you can create a folder for your Production team, one for your Staging team and one for your Testing team.

Grant Permissions


Edit your folder properties to grant permissions for your Role based security system. The permissions granted on the folder will then be inherited by each entry set under that folder. If you are using integrated security (Active Directory), please follow this link for more information.


Import your data

The final step is to import all of your data into Remote Desktop Manager. You can import your sessions, logins and contacts in a few easy step.
