Hi

When I've set up a RDP connection in the manager I've found function "subconnections". I wanted to use those when I connect to an RDP session and from there I want to start another RDP session , cause some of our sessions are only available from the primary RDP session. Can those subconnections be used for something like this, or is that impossible?

thx for help

best regards
Marco

Hi

What you are describing is how our "linked sessions" for VPNs work.

SubConnections are mostly to reuse connection details or credentials from the parent, i.e. having one windows server and connecting to it using RDP, a web browser, yet another protocol, etc.

Hi

In the VPN tab, select a value for "Open", our favorite is "Connect if unable to ping"

in "Type", select "Existing Session"

then in the dropdown that appeared in the Details tab, select the session that needs to be opened before the one you're configuring

Please note that only certain types of entries appear in the dropdown: VPN, SSH, web and command line.

Hi Maurice,
I was trying to follow because I wanted to do something similar, start a RDP session from and RDP session.
Is this possible with just a configuration or will it require a powershell script or something like that?

Thanks,

Joe

Currently, you would have to install RDM also on the "management host".

If you have a limited number of sessions you use frequently from that management host, you could go in the advanced tab of the sessions and use the "Create Desktop Shortcut" in order to have them readily available.
