Creating a New Entry

Overview

 

When getting started with Remote Desktop Manager you must configure your entries. There are many types of entries; you should know what third party or technology you will use to connect remotely in order to choose the appropriate entry type(s) that you plan on configuring.

 

Creating an entry from the context menu

 

On the main application window simply right-click on the name of the data source and select Add from the menu. To initialize a new session, you can specify either the type of session, or a template. You will be prompted to customize your settings in the entry properties window.

Creating an entry with drag & drop

 

You can also create a session by dragging and dropping an .rdp file in the main application window. By doing so, Remote Desktop Manager will ask you whether to import the content and create a new session, or create a session linked to the .rdp file. It is also possible to drag and drop the LogMeIn desktop shortcut to create a LogMeIn session.

 

It is possible that drag and drop will not work because of your security settings. They may prevent applications running in different contexts from interacting. For example, if Remote Desktop Manager is running in an elevated context (administrator mode) and Internet Explorer is running in default mode, Windows will not allow you to drag a URL link in the application.

 

Creating an entry by importing its configuration

 

You can also import entries by using the Import Computer Wizard, or by importing it's configuration directly from any compatible applications supported by our import tools. You can learn more in the Import section.
