RDP - client initiated MS-RDP protocol support connection program?

I am wondering is there somewhere a support client application that can make use of MS/Citrix excellent RDP protocol?

For support I am currently using uVNC, SIngleClick, but while that works, it is a bit sluggish.

What I would like is an application that can be used to initiate RDP serving in the same manner that is done with Crossloop, uVNC, TeamViewer, etc.

Any help appreciated!

I have not found the company that offers solution that I have required, or some other way to do what I've asked for.

Essentially, I have continued to use open source uVNC SC solutions, until better is found.

Yes, I know. - But how easy it is for use?
I've looked into some guides, and it is not clear to me could I simply put a link on a website and tell a client ot execute it and click a button.

Example with uVNC:
1. I tell a user (most of them already know that) to download a program from our website
2. They execute the program
3. Then click connect
4. I am there.

The server-client app connects to my dynamic hostname hosted by DynDNS like computer.company.tdl

Can this be done with Remote Support? - I know some IT companies that are MS gold cert partners, and they don't use Remote Support.


Thanks!

From what I remember if you follow the steps on the Remote Assistance wizard it creates and sends an email to the person that will control you remotely. Simple indeed.

Yes :-)
You create an invitation, than you send it by email, than a user receives it, than it runs it, than it gives me the password, and than I work. This method would take me at least 20 minutes, and has a lot requirements. Count that with each minute I loose, I am not only loosing profits, but also spending money on telephone communication.

Compare that with: small download (180 Kib), run, connect.

Plus, there are many PCs in companies that don't have email (in service depts., etc.).

In that case I see you are making money right? If that is the case why not use a commercial solution like LogMeIn Rescue?

Performance is VERY acceptable and works on any sort of PC (Win/Mac).

Hello, I have received no communication from the company you've suggested.

Instead, I am still stationed with uVNC SingleClick solution.

Any other suggestion?


Thanks.
