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.
March 23, 2021 Update: New Version for AmigaOS 3.x (68k) in Development!
I am happy to announce that a new version of Remote Desktop for AmigaOS 3.x (68k) is in development! This version will be based on the latest MorphOS port and it will include most of the features of the newer MorphOS port including Windows 10 support, a properly functioning mouse pointer/cursor, audio re-direction, clipboard support, and more.
Although the final version will be free, donations will of course help. You can donate any amount small or large using the Donate button below on this webpage. All donations will be sent directly to the developer.
A beta version is already running so hopefully it will not take too long for a release version – donations will speed up this process! Thank you to everyone who has donated in the past and for your continued support of the Amiga and the community!
