Tabbed windows for remote desktop connections

Buck Hodges

Shortly after I wrote about Remote Desktop Connection 6.0 client, Blake Handler sent me email about a CodePlex project called Terminals.  Terminals is a neat application that hosts RDC sessions in tabs.

One of the options in the Terminals connection dialog is whether to connect to the console, which becomes important when connecting to Windows 2003 Servers.  Unless I missed it, the RDC 6.0 GUI still doesn’t have this feature, and you still have to use mstsc /console.

Terminals was created by Dudu Shmaya and Eyal Post.  If Dudu’s name sounds familiar, it’s because he also wrote the TFSBuildManager that I recently wrote about.  I noticed it at the time and added to the list of things to check out, but Blake’s email motivated me to go download and try it.  I like it!

You can find screenshots of Terminals in Eyal’s post, Windows Terminal Services Client.  Check it out!
