RDP Protocol - Overview

The Microsoft RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) enables one computer [the client] to connect to another computer [the server] over a network connection. For example, you can use RDP to connect to a central, powerful server for working on specific business applications or graphic terminals. This provides you with the same look and feel as if you are working on a standalone PC. The client computer employs RDP client software for this purpose, while the other computer must run RDP server software. The client software is referred to as Remote Desktop Connection. The server software is referred to as Remote Desktop Services.

For details on the versions of RDP that are supported by VuGen, see the Product Availability Matrix, available from the Software Support site.

Note: RDP versions 5.1 and later have an Experience tab that allows you to set various options. This tab is not supported by VuGen recording. All options are set to the ON position.
