I'm used to connect to several computers (clients and servers) for maintenance and assistance (mostly using RDP). I'm searching for a better solution than the RD client. I've seen some friends of mine use "mRemoteNG".
What do you use? What do you suggest?

On Windows I just use Microsoft's own Remote Desktop Connection Manager. You can view multiple RDP sessions as thumbnails, and like other managers, you can store a list of connections and either take values from the parent group for settings, or you can customise each connection individually...

@Pradeep Vishwakarma
I would like to compare this tool to at least another one.

@roybridge
MS's product seems very good although it's dated 2010 and doesn't support W8 (at least isn't mentioned). It seams it has been abandoned.


I was having a look at Remote Desktop Manager. Do you have any experience with this software?


Thank you for your replies. Any other suggestions?

Hi Strivoli,

We're using Remote Desktop Manager. It is to my opinion that this is the most complete "Remote connections manager" there is. It supports multiple type of connections. Normal RDP, RDP gateways, ESX, Citrix, etc. It even supports multiple VPN vendors.

It can build the VPN connection first and then automatic login to a server or other application.

It even has its own credential store like keepass.

With the Enterprise version you can even use it offline (when not connected to a central database)

I'm trying "Remote Desktop Manager" and see how it works. I will start with the free edition and consider purchasing the more feature-rich in the near future if needed.
This link (http://www.nextofwindows.com/top-3-free-remote-desktop-connections-manager/) might be useful.
Thank you for taking the time.

Just as a side note in answer to a previous comment, although not mentioned, MS's own product does work on Windows 8 and 8.1, but you need to set it to run as administrator for it to be able to save settings properly.
