The Advanced tab contains advanced settings related to the session, such as the internal data source ID and session ID. These values can be used to invoke Remote Desktop Manager from a command line or even a web protocol handler.








Override domain

Allow you to override the domain when the credential are sent to the remote session. Select between:

Default: Use the domain from the domain field in the session.

Use Host Name: Use the host name (computer name) as the domain.

Custom Domain: Use the domain in the Domain field from the Information section.

Allow open multiple connections

When a connection is already open and you reopen it, create a new instance instead of focusing on the other session.

User name format

Determines the username format. Useful when connecting to remote systems that have a single field for the username but where you still need to send the domain name in order to authenticate. The possible values are:

Default: does not change the user name.

Domain\Username: formats the username by prefixing with the domain name.

Username@Domain: formats the username by appending the domain name.

User: trims the domain to keep only the username.
