Windows Server 2008 RDP v6.x improvements

It has been ages since I’ve updated my blog. I’ve been so busy lately with sorting out my life and working, so I just haven’t had the time. Here are few notes on the new RDP which is in use in Windows Server 2008.

The improvements are quite nice. Video support is now up to 4,096×2,048. Basically users can now use very large monitors to view data off a Windows 2008 Terminal Services system.

There is now multi monitor support. Which means that users can now have multiple monitors supported off a single RDP connection. For example graphical arts or publishing applications, users can view graphical information on one screen and text or something else on another screen at the same time.

The new RDP client provides now highly encrypted remote connection to a Terminal Services system through the use of Windows 2008 security. So organisations who need their data secured can implement highly secured encrypted connections between Windows 2008 Terminal Services and remote client.
