Tested embedded web browser auto login within frames (IE): This works - mostly. Fields are filled in. Can't get login/submit button pressed. Tried typing macro {ENTER} and that doesnt work. Fields on only filled in when embeded, if you select External, no fields are filled in
Tested against Sonicwall login. Previous versions, even if I filled in the field name (No control ID's are there) the fields never got filled in.

thank you very much for "send ctrl-alt-delete to embedded rdp", great!
can you give me an update about the timeframe for "remember teamviewer sessions" and remember session-connect comments (http://forum.devolutions.net/forum/topic1212-teamviewer-addon--connection-notecomment.aspx)

Clock8 yrs

Hi.

I can't connect to my Dropbox database with newest beta. I've got "The current datasource is unavailable" error. Works when i downgrade to 6.1.8.0

@marlonqpa
I have updated the binaries. Can you retry to download it?

@Xanacas : If finally found a solution to send key stroke to an RDP session, this has allowed me to add the Ctrl+Alt+Delete feature. For your tow requests, it's in progress but I decided to release the beta sooner.

Hello David

thank you very much!
but.... :P sorry =)
would it be possible to add a "password" field to the promt for ID field and add the remember function to this too?
one more: thank you!

Clock8 yrs

Hi,
I'm not sure I understand, you want me to hide the ID with a password field? What is the remember function for you?

could you here add a password field too and remember it?

and one mor think to last comment and last id would be great if they would be safed per sessionid/ for every session

edit: and the order in the connection comment windows isn't perfect, now i have to double tab until I'm on the OK button...
<em>edited by Xanacas on 8/16/2011</em>

Hi,
I'm sorry again, I really don't understand the password field. What should I do with the password, you just want the application to reload it? Why not save it in the session directly?

we are a software and hardware reseller, so we have daily many contacts to our customers, to the big and important customers we have vpn/rdp connection, or some times teamviewer connections. this connections are configured as normal sessions. but there are many customers, where we have to connect temporary through teamviewer. so the customer downloads the teamviewer quicksupport and tells us the id and the password. but we want to monitor the connections, thats why we start these temporary connections out of RDM from a default teamviewer session without a configured ID. so we enter the ID on opening the connection.
some times we have to reopen these seetings after a few minutes again, and then it would be great if we could reconnect using the last id and password field.
hope you understand what i mean, if not probably we should choose an other way to comunicate - sorry for my english.. :P

Clock8 yrs

Hi,
I think I understand now, so I have to save the password and id as a group. I will try to add this

Ok, this is a long shot, but....
In Server 2003 Terminal Services, you could use Terminal Services Manager to see all the Terminal Server "hosts" that were running in the Domain. Now, in Server 2008 and R2, Terminal Services has been renamed as Remote Desktop Services. The new RDS services include a more robust Session Broker and the new RD Gateway to handle remote/outside connectivity more securely.

Here's the issue for us...
With a Session Broker, all RDS Hosts (terminal servers) "check-in" with the Session Broker to handle load balancing and reconnections. The Remote Desktop Services Manager can gather a list of all the farms registered with it. The problem is, it is REALLY cumbersome to use when you have 300+ servers to operate. The old way TS Manager worked was to connect to a given server to see their sessions, it was as simple as arrowing down to it and hitting Enter. Even if there were a lot, it was still fairly quick, although it would have been nice to have a "Connect All" option when right-clicking the Domain in the TS Manager. Now, in RDS Manager, they've made things a LOT harder. Not only do you have to select each server, but you also have to right-click and choose connect, you can't just hit Enter. To further the problem, even if you arrow down and "select" the server you want to view sessions on, you get no "Connect" option on the menu until you either click that server with the mouse, or first hit Enter. And the best part, every time we add a new RDS Farm, we have to refresh the RDS Manager and, guess what, ALL of the connections have to be reconnected. This means that before I can see a full list of who's connected I have to select and right-click, "connect", each and every server. And guess what, it crashes...ALL...THE...TIME...GRRRRRRR!!! So each and every crash, guess what...reconnect.

Now that may all sound really confusing if you've never used it before, and that may be where the ability to support this stops. If ANYONE else beta testing uses this functionality outside of Remote Desktop Manager and finds it equally annoying, please help me explain this better. Typically this is going to be an issue for Data Center setups like we have where we have literally hundreds of server farms to connect to.


So...is there ANYTHING that can be programmed into RDM to allow a connection to an RD Session Broker to get the farm list? I am MORE than willing to get a guest session connected directly to our infrastructure to show you exactly what happens. This is nothing that screen shots will show you. You have to see the workflow to understand the problem. This may or may not be something RDM can do, or that you even want to try, but nobody else is doing anything that I'm aware of to get a better solution than what Microsoft puked out.

Thanks for any help!

Using 6.1.10.0

Events, After Connect, Typing Macro - It seems to only execute sporatically. It works the first time I open the program and go to the website (Its just sends {TAB}{TAB}{ENTER}.)

On the times it doesnt work if I click the Run Macro (Control-ALT-A) It works. Sometimes toggling the Execute Automatically check box gets it to work once.

For consistency, I suggest changing {Delay} to {DELAY} to be consistent with all the other ones.
