Remote Desktop Manager for Mac gives you the flexibility to run operations before or after establishing a connection.


The operations are defined via the Events tab of the session properties window. Define a script or a command line that will be executed at the appropriate time and It will automatically execute the parameters, such as the session ID, the session name, or the configured user name. For example, this can be used to execute a batch file or an external application that prompts the user for more information or to update a log on an external server.
