    Having tabs to quickly switch between my terminal sessions makes my life so much easier.

  • Now that this has been internationalized, what are the odds us Mac users can get an RDC 6.0 supporting client guys? RDC 1.0.3 for OS X was released in October of 2004.

    It would be nice to see a new client supporting these cool features the team put into 6.0

  • Yes!  When can we expect the new MAC client?

  • Hi,

    I've installed the new client on xp and I can connect using the 3389 port, but if I switch xP to a different port, vista Remote desktop client cannot connect - OR it will loop through connecting and disconnecting.

    Is there a workaround for this?

    P.S.  I've tried turning off firewalls, etc.  I just can't get the RD client in vista to connect to xp if the port is not standard.

  • Hi Brad,

    May I ask you a few questions?

    0) To which SKU of XP do you refer?

    1) Is FUS enabled?

    2) Is the machine joined to a domain?

    3) Did this work in the past for an XP to XP session?



  • Bruce,

    I'm not familiar with the term FUS.  The machine is a remote stand alone xp machine.  It worked for years as an xp to xp session.

    BUT:  By switching the ports from 21 to 119 the sessions seem to be working now.  

    I don't know if you have any ideas on why 21 used to work XP to XP but doesn't now?  I am fine running it off 119 - but curious what might be causing the disconnect on 21  :)


  • Hey Brad,

    FUS stands for Fast User Switching where a users session can be switched out for another for a bit then switched back.

    A SKU is a version of windows. XP was available in several different skus, such as XP Pro and XP Home. Here's a link to a list of XP skus:

    Can you tell us which SKU your machine is?

    Also, can you tell us if the machine is joined to a domain? This is usually the case if your machine is on a network at a place of business.

    It's possible that some other tcpip app was using port 21. That might cause TS to fail in the way you describe. But I really can't be positive about this until I scanned a resource list for the network on your machine.

    If you have further questions, please let us know.



  • Brad,

    After a little bit of poking around, I see that you shouldn't be using port 21 or 119.

    Port 21 is the default ftp port.

    Port 119 is the tcp usenet port.

    In general, it's not a good idea to use a port below about 5000 since a lot of them are default ports for other tcp apps.
