Hello,

Unfortunately, it is not possible to import an RDP file in RDM Android directly. That being said, if you have access to a Windows workstation, I would recommend installing RDM Windows on it and use our Devolutions Online Drive to share your entries from your Windows workstation to your Android Device.

To do so, please do the following steps:

1- Install RDM on your Windows workstation using this link: https://remotedesktopmanager.com/home/thankyou/rdmfreesetup

2- Create a Devolutions Online Drive Data Source by going under File -> Data Source -> Add Data Source -> Devolutions Online Drive (Please note that in order to use this type of Data Source, you will need to create a free Devolutions Cloud account using this link: https://account.devolutions.com/register )

3- Once created, go under File -> Import -> Import From -> RDP Configuration (rdp).

Now all of your entries will be saved on your Devolutions Online Drive Data Source:

4- Go under File -> Data Sources -> Edit (pen) ->Backup -> Use the Backup dropdown menu to select "Online Backup"
5- Use the ellipsis -> Type in a name for your Backup in the "New backup" field -> Click on "Create" -> Select

Now each time you will close RDM, the changes made to your data will be saved in your Devolutions Cloud Account:

6- Go on your Android Device -> Open RDM -> Create a Devolutions Online Drive Data source using the same Devolutions Cloud account
7- Once your Data has been loaded, you will see the rdp file you have imported during the step 3

For more information on that matter, please refer to this link:

Hello,

I stand corrected, this option was not available during my tests because of a bug in the current version of RDM Android on the store.
That being said, a fix has been found and it will be available in the next version.

To workaround this issue, you need to create at least one folder. Once created, you will be able to press on the Ellipsis (...) then select "Import (.rdm,pvm,.xml)".

I hope this helps!

Best regards,

Thanks James.
The option you mention is there. However there is no .rdp file import option.
Thanks

Hello,

Would it be possible for you to provide me a screenshot of the content of your Vault in RDM Android via private message?

Best regards,
