I started a new job last week on Monday. I decided to go to work for one of my former bosses from one of my past lives. Along with my former boss, I get to work along side a former colleague. In this environment we work with multiple Windows domains.
One day while working on a project with my former/current colleague I noticed that all of his remote desktop connections were organized by domain in one easy snap-in. At first I thought he was using the remote desktop MMC snap in with multiple connections, but then I looked a little further and I saw he was using something completely different.
I looked it up online, and found that the application he was using could do so much more than just remote desktop. In fact, here is a list of all the protocols it supports:
- RDP (Remote Desktop)
- VNC (Virtual Network Computing)
- ICA (Independent Computing Architecture)
- SSH (Secure Shell)
- Telnet (TELecommunication NETwork)
- HTTP/S (Hypertext Transfer Protocol)
- Rlogin (Rlogin)
This application is called mRemote, and is absolutely free! Here is a screenshot from their page of a connection using SSH:
Since I installed it it has made my life a little easier in the new joint. Having to administer multiple domains can be a daunting task, so organization is key. Currently I have all of my servers organized by domain.
Do you know of a similar tool? Do you use mRemote? Any tips with it? What do you like/dislike about it? Hit me up in the comments!
