Recently Microsoft updated it’s Remote Desktop Connection (also known as RDC or MSTSC). The RDP Protocol has been updated to version 6.1. The new version comes with Windows XP SP3, Windows Vista SP1 and Windows 2008 Server.
One of the changes they made is that /console is no longer there, instead /admin has to be used now to connect to the console session of a Windows 2003 or 2008 server.
The new RDM is compatible with the new RDC tool (as well as the older versions of course).
The full releasenotes:
- I: RDP 6.1 compatibility (Vista SP1, Windows XP SP3, Windows 2008 Server).
- I: Upgraded solution to Visual Studio 2008 Express Edition (build target set to .NET 2.0).
- B: RDP Discovered hosts with multiple IP addresses (but resolving to the same name) are only added once.
The release can be downloaded at: Sourceforge.
Oh and btw, I did not skip versions 1.2 and 1.3 I just did not write a blog post about it.
