Connecting to RDP

Connecting to an RDP server is much like connecting to a datasource.

  1. Connect: Click on the RDP name in your GUI, or execute sdm connect <servername> at the command line.

  2. Open your RDP client. strongDM supports the official Microsoft RDP client on Windows and Mac.

  3. Under ‘PC Name’ or the equivalent in your RDP client, enter localhost:PORT, replacing PORT with the port assigned to your RDP server in the strongDM client.

  4. Under ‘User Account’ or the equivalent, enter any string. This is purely for client-side validation and is not used in the authentication process.

  5. Save your connection, and then connect.

  6. If you run into any issues, please contact strongDM.
