Remote Desktop

The Remote Desktop client allows computers running the MorphOS, Amiga OS4, AROS, or Amiga 68K or compatible Operating System to connect to Microsoft Windows XP Pro, 2000 Server (with Terminal Services), Windows 2003 Server, Windows Vista (Business/Ultimate/Enterprise) and Windows 7 for remote management and operability.  It allows the user to fully use the remote computer from any location – as long as both machines are online and remote desktop has been enabled on the Windows host.

      I will get it fixed as asap. Must have died when I moved the site to a new server. Thanks

        Hi, I’m trying to leave a comment about the PCI USB card on the Classic hardware section, but I keep getting ‘bounced’ to an internal server error, got a solution ?

        How come you don’t have an email link for these pages?

    The link to the 68k demo is still broken 😀

    Hi, for the 68K client does the old RdesktopMUI GUI still work on the current version of Rdesktop ?

    I’m going to write a comment here even though the comment section is broken. All comments ontop of each other – unreadable. Clicking them does nothing, tries to connect locally to 192.168..

    Anyway, if you could answer this comment to me email (since the comment section is broken), I would like to know (before buying anythng!) if there is any chance I could connect to my Win 10 machine with the latest RDesktop, or is Win 7 the highest supported version?

    I can see in the Win 10 Event Viewer that the older v1.6.1 I have tries to connect but exist with the very descriptive error message: “ERROR: recv:”. Will the latest (1.7?) version do any better?

    Kind Regards,
    Daniel W

    Windows 10 works. You may need to adjust some compatibility / security settings on Windows 10 Remote Desktop options, but short answer, is yes, it will connect.

    BTW, comments should be fixed. I changed the WordPress Theme to something that is newer and thus better supported, and now comments are displaying OK.

    I just get “Error: modulus len 0x108” connecting from my Amiga 600 with Coffin OS 5.3 towards my Windows 7 workstation with NLA turned off.
    I use RDesktop-68K-Demo

      Sorry I don’t have a Vampire so I can’t really be of much help. I’ve tested it on Amiga 4000’s, Pegasos II’s, Amithlon, and X1000 and it works there.

    The OS4 version seems to be from 2007 and doesn’t work with modern OSes. Is there a plan to bring this up to date or ?
