Introducing RDP 7.0
Businesses today are gravitating towards virtualization and far away access to company assets. As employees travel across the globe to meet clients, attend shows or conferences, or confer with their colleagues, it is important that they have obtain access to basic data from any location. Microsoft-developed far away Desktop sets (RDS), formerly known as Terminal sets, allow employees to establish a far away desktop connection to their companys servers and access applications, data, and other resources from any web-connected computer. This far away desktop connection allows employees to run applications on the far away server, open important files from a far away location, and characterize any needed presentation materials. An important part of RDS that facilitates this connection is the far away Desktop Protocol (RDP).
What is RDP?
The far away Desktop Protocol (RDP) is a protocol developed by Microsoft to manage the input and output between a client and a server. When an employee makes a far away connection to the server, the RDP receives the users input (i.e., mouse clicks and meaningful strokes) and returns the output from the server (i.e., opened files and typed words) to the users computer. The computer must have the RDP client or the ActiveX control installed before the user can make the far away connection by the RDS.
RDP is based on the Telecommunication Standardization Sector (ITU-T) T.120 set of protocols. It can be hosted on the far away server, can sustain multiple network topologies and LAN protocols, and transfers data by multiple, separate channels – up to 64,000. RDP processes its output using its own virtual video driver on the server and transmits that data to the client. It also processes the input from the client using its own virtual keyboard and mouse drivers.
The latest version, RDP 7.0, is bundled with Windows Server 2008, Release 2, and Windows 7, but it is also backwards compatible with Windows XP, Service Pack 3, and Windows Vista. In addition to Windows, other operating systems, such as Linux, Unix, and Mac, have clients that utilize this protocol.
employing the far away Desktop Protocol provides users with the following features:
Encryption – uses RC4 cipher that is designed to protect data transmitted over a network. Bandwidth reduction – implements various methods to reduce the amount of data that is sent across the network. Some of these methods include data compression, persistent bitmap caching, and caching of glyphs and particles in RAM. Clipboard sustain – allows users to copy and paste text between the client and the server and between different sessions. Print sustain – allows users to print documents running in their far away session to a local printer. Shared control – allows multiple users to view and control a far away desktop session. This characterize is especially useful when collaborating with a colleague or when troubleshooting a problem with the Help Desk. Authentication – provides users with the ability to authenticate with a smart card. Sound redirection – broadcasts sounds from the far away desktop to the client desktop. Session disconnect – allows users to disconnect from a far away desktop session without logging off and allows them to reconnect to their disconnected session. This characterize is useful when a users session is unexpectedly disconnected by a network or client problem.
In addition to these features, user with computers running Windows 7 Enterprise or Ultimate edition can take advantage of these additional benefits:
Aero glass sustain. Redirection of Windows Media Player. Multiple monitor sustain.
