RDCMan manages multiple remote desktop connections. It is useful for managing server labs where you need regular access to each machine such as automated checkin systems and data centers. It is similar to the built-in MMC Remote Desktops snap-in, but more flexible.

The installation is very easy.

I love first install errors smile_devil It is my Pc that is the problem not the application I hope.

So now that the installation is completed we are ready to go.

I use visionapp all the time and I like this very much.

image  First we must make a group that holds the Servers

Now that we have a Group we can import Servers or add a server.

But the first time you may want to add a bulk with a text file or with a wildcard. in this case a # the bad thing you can only add one wildcard.

So now I have imported my servers I want to create groups “domain name” Role or add subgroup

image  Now I can’t add servers to the DC group I can only add servers to the RODC Group. In vissionapp I can do this.

Overall It is like visionapp but RDCman is only at the beginning no add in for external applications or the server in folder thing like above.

And I must say the TAB view in the top off the screen is nice now you have to scroll down to click your server, but If you have lots of open RDP sessions the most active sessions are on top if you use the sorting

SO if you don’t want to pay for a RDP management tool this RDCman is the tool you want easy to use and to manage. No problems with NLA on windows 2008 R2

A cool thing is that you can connect to group and Logoff to group 😉

In may case I run it to 100 RDP sessions got again a nice error and the RDCman went down.
