Configure Microsoft's Remote Desktop Connection Manager

The RDCMan top level group

The top level group
RDCMan can manage server access in a number of ways. For smaller organizations like mine, it makes the most sense to create a single top level file/group into which individual servers and service groups will be deployed. I'll talk about service groups in a bit, but for now, let's focus on individual servers.

Creating a new top level group is as easy as going to the File menu and choosing New and providing a file name for the top level group. The new file will appear as the top level group in your navigation hierarchy.

The newly created top level group contains a number of properties that you can set as the default for all of your remote desktop connections. To open the Properties page, right-click the top level group and, from the shortcut menu, choose Properties.
