"Awesome Product!! A must for mutilple site support."

May 14, 2010  |  By mcrownover

 |  Version: Remote Desktop Manager 5.7.3.0

Pros

Auto-connection to VPN clients saves me valuable time each and every day.

Cons

I can be a little hard to configure, but once you know your way around, you will never look back.

Summary

I stumbled across this product back in December 09, and fell in love. I support over 50 remote customers. Some of them are straight RDP, with others require a Cisco or Windows VPN connection. With this product I could define the VPNs to connect automatically first and disconnect when I am done. It saves me valuable time.

The other thing I love is the dynamic screen sizing. When I come out of full screen mode. With this I can still see the entire screen. NO MORE SCROLL BARS!!

I truly don't understand the few bad reviews. This is truly an amazing product and how can youargue with the price?

"Useful tool for anyone in support or development"

May 06, 2010  |  By deathsfriend

 |  Version: Remote Desktop Manager 5.7.3.0

Pros

Easy to use and understand
Developer is quick to provide support
Inexpensive to buy
Does support alot more then the name suggests (VNC, FTP, Virtual Machines, etc.)
VPN Support is a life / time saver
Support for writing your own addons

Cons

No local documentation
Doesn't tell you if a host is online or not
Automated deployment to large number of users is a pain
Doesn't support dial-up modems (but is this a real issue in this day and age??)

Summary

This is one of those few tools that you don't really see the point of until you have a requirement for it. This software sure beats my previous solution (a bunch of scripts or saved remote desktop connections in a folder) aimed at the same problem.

I don't really think you can do it justice in just a short space, as it really does do alot more then the name suggests. The lack of documentation may throw some people off, but there is nothing here a seasoned professional wouldn't be able to work out and use effectively.

If you manage or use alot of VNC, Remote Desktop or other connection-based work then I can't recommend this product enough.

The lack documentation is the only reason it doesn't get 5 stars.

"Puts everywhere you need to go in one central place"

April 23, 2010  |  By sinclaj1

 |  Version: Remote Desktop Manager 5.7.3.0

Pros

+ Ease of use - everything is in one central place
+ Author quick to answer questions, provide fixes/updates
+ Free (Enterprise version inexpensive)
+ Manages nearly anything

Cons

- Documentation is on their website / forums. Integrating it into the app would be nice, but isn't a deal breaker.

Summary

RDM (Remote Desktop Manager) is a life-saver.

Consider if you routinely connect via RDP/TSC to other systems or IP's. Microsoft's tool remembers the last 10 connections via drop-down. If you hit hundreds of systems, you can't possibly remember each IP.

This program allows you to add connection info and manage them. You can organize them into groups or types. Basically, Remote Desktop Manager can work with anything that can be run through the command line or that can take parameters. I have over 100 servers currently that I must support, and this makes connecting to them effortless. Once I set up a server in RDM (takes about 60 seconds), it becomes available for me to click from the task-bar icon. Right-click the taskbar icon, find it in the list, and click it. It connects and you're on your way.
I also have several dozen website URLs organized in there (dashboard sites, environment status, etc), along with links to flat files (hosts file, batch files, etc).

The bottom line is, this application allows you to put all of your daily needs into one easy-to-access location. You can also export everything you've set up into a file and share it with other RDM users to import.

RDM allows you to connect via full-screen or smaller sizes that you define, and can also run connections embedded in the RDM app itself, allowing for tabbed sessions.

You can ping multiple servers/connections from the same interface.

Also allows you to pull up the Event Viewer, Control Panel, and Registry Editor on remote boxes without actually bringing up the box on the screen. Very handy for remote support work.

Some of the apps it supports and works through: Putty, VNC, TeamViewer, WinSCP, LogMeIn, Citrix, XWindows, PCAnywhere, VPN, VirtualPC, Windows Virtual PC, VMWare, Hyper V, Sun VirtualBox, Virtual Server, MS SQL Server

Can also use Windows Command Prompt, text editors, Windows Explorer, and nearly any internet browser.

The author is quite adept at answering questions and requests for enhancements or bugfixes. I've used this application now for over a year and can say it probably saves me an average of an hour a day simply due to how I can organize things and get to them quickly from the taskbar icon.

For an app to do all of this, and for free, is amazing.
I would encourage systems administrators and support personnel to at least consider and try this product. Give it 30 minutes, read the forums and documentation on the site, and see if can make your day any easier. It truly is as simple as that.

"I use it every day and it makes my work a lot easier"

April 19, 2010  |  By solarsavior

 |  Version: Remote Desktop Manager 5.7.3.0

Pros

Allows creating connection entries to a wide variety of servers, network devices, etc. The software writer is constantly coding and adding additional features. The price is right too. Free for Standard and cheap for Enterprise which I use.

Cons

The documentation is lacking, but if you're a professional IT person, you should be able to figure it out. It's well worth it. It will allow you to place ALL of the links you need to do your work in one place.

Summary

The other two reviews are either trolls done by employees of competing companies or were done by non-professionals. Remote Desktop Manager is well worth your time if you spend a little time figuring it out. The software writer spends more time working on the software than documenting it, but I believe it to be the best connection manager out there today. Check out other websites for reviews.

"Serves no useful purpose"

March 19, 2010  |  By x-15a2

 |  Version: Remote Desktop Manager 5.7.3.0

Pros

Still looking...

Cons

Poorly documented and does not make controlling Remote Desktops any easier. Difficult to configure and more obtrusive than it is useful.

Summary

Keep looking.

Updated on Apr 4, 2012

My initial review was pretty negative, but this program has come a long way and now I use it daily for working from my remote office.

The amount of control it give you for remote connections is fantastic and the configuration is pretty easy.

Recommended.

"Excellent piece of software for managing rdp connections"

August 06, 2007  |  By rmarshall79

 |  Version: Remote Desktop Manager 1

Pros

Manages rdp connections from one location and allows you to easily switch and make new connections without having to remember connection details. Software installs easily but you will get an error if .net framework 2.0 or higher is not installed. Recommend to anyone who manages a number of rdp connections.
