Easily Switch Remote Desktop Session to VNC

Is there an easy way to switch between connection types for the same host? IE have a session that is by default Remote Desktop but I have the option to say click something that would connect via VNC to that host instead? Maybe a script to do this or something?

Our recommended practice is to use sub connections. You create a Server entry that holds the host name or IP Address, then you create sub connections for the protocol you require, and specify $PARENT_IP$ or $PARENT_HOST$ in the host field

Please refer to this

oooh! that's how i was doing it currently but without the $PARENT_HOST$ and $PARENT_IP$ smile that makes things a lot easier!
