Establishing a Connection



There are two possible modes for establishing a connection:


From a configured connection in the connection list

Using the quick connect feature. Learn more about quick connect here.


Depending on the mode, Remote Desktop Manager can use a completely different application or library. For example, the external mode for Remote Desktop will use the Microsoft Remote Desktop's client (mstsc.exe), and the embedded mode will use the ActiveX.

You may open a Connection in different ways:


by double clicking it in the sessions list

by pressing enter while the entry is focused

by using the context menu (right-click).

by using the commands in the dashboard.
