rep connection setting have the option to choose what connection you're running on and this adjusts the setting for you. Always set it to 56kbps modem and you'll be good to go

Yep lower colors  maybe resolution, also untick everything in the Experience tab.  Untick what you don't need in the Local Resources tab.  That's about it, comes down to bandwidth now.

How much bandwidth does the remote computer connection have?

Simple, centralized multimedia control

Watch and learn to see how ATEN provided an easy and effective way for three jointly-owned pubs to control the 60 televisions located across their three venues utilizing the ATEN Control System, Modular Matrix Switch and HDBaseT extenders.

well it varies , what I have is a spec that I was given of 50kps so i am thinking it is that at the most , I am trying to justify that number . I am not sure what version however I should know tommorow.

I am thinking someones estimate is low but dont have documents to back it up

If you change it to 56kbps then RDP will adjust its performance to pretend to be on a really slow connection. Therefore it is using less bandwidth like you are asking.

What I do when I'm using my laptop over a 3G connection is edit the RDP icon in notepad and change the color settings and resolution.

The color settings I change to 8bit, so the line looks like:
session bpp:i:8

Then I change my resolution to the minimum I can stand at the time which is typically:
desktopwidth:i:800
desktopheight:i:600

The lower the color depth and resolution the faster the connection will be.  Typically you're limited by the upload bandwidth at the location you're logging into.  If not that then the download bandwidth you're using is the bottleneck.
