Remote Desktop Manager alternative
« on: June 03, 2008, 01:51:09 PM »
I work tech support for a company that uses Microsoft's Remote Desktop to connect to client computers.  I'm using SpeedApps "Remote Manager" and love it!  However, it has a couple problems and I'm looking for a freeware alternative.

 :down: First issue, there's some concerns about the "author" of the product (See http://www.donationc...47.msg97698#msg97698).
 :down: Secondly, the program occasionally uses most of the available memory, causing my system to lock up. 

Is there some software out there that lets me manage my connections and access them in the same window?  Remote Manager has:
 :up: tabs for each connection,
 :up: multiple protocols,
 :up: screenshot manager,
 :up: inheritance of settings from a master, etc. 
Great functionality, but I'm not comfortable with the issues listed above.

Anybody have other suggestions?

Well, if you love SpeedApps Remote Manager, but aren't comfortable with the reputation of the "author", then you might like to move to mRemote, which appears to be the open source 'inspiration' of SpeedApps Remote Manager:

Jeez - did that SpeedApps/App-zilla guy produce anything that wasn't stolen?
