Remote Desktop Protocol (Microsoft RDP)

“Remote Desktop Services provides functionality similar to a terminal-based, centralized host, or mainframe, environment in which multiple terminals connect to a host computer.”

In simpler terms, it is a gateway for you to connect to multiple computers located somewhere else so that you can control them to perform a KUDUwave test. You will need to follow the instructions below and setup the remote desktop connection on both PC’s which have Windows as an operating system.

How to connect to another computer using Remote Desktop Connection

Remote Desktop Protocol

Microsoft RDP includes the following features and capabilities:

Roaming disconnect

A user can manually disconnect from a remote desktop session without logging off. The user is automatically reconnected to their disconnected session when he or she logs back onto the system, either from the same device or a different device. When a user's session is unexpectedly terminated by a network or client failure, the user is disconnected but not logged off.

Clipboard mapping

Users can delete, copy, and paste text and graphics between applications running on the local computer and those running in a remote desktop session, and between sessions.

Print redirection

Applications running within a remote desktop session can print to a printer attached to the client device.

Remote control

Computer support staff can view and control a remote desktop session. Sharing input and display graphics between two remote desktop sessions gives a support person the ability to diagnose and resolve problems remotely.

In addition, RDP contains the following features:

Sound, drive, port, and network printer redirection. Sounds that occur on the remote computer can be heard on the client computer running the RDC client, and local client drives will be visible to the remote desktop session.
