I am very happy to announce a new version of the Remote Desktop client for OS4! The new version includes support for connecting to Windows Vista machines, automatic stack checking and the latest GUI all in one package.

For users who have donated, please E-mail darrenhd ( at ) gmail.com and I will send you the latest version after verifying your prior (or new) donation.

For OS4 users who have not donated I have put together a special archive with the latest GUI included, but an older version of the client so you can try it out.

The features of the Remote Desktop client are:

Connect to NT/2000 Server/2003 Server/XP Pro
Window or Full Screen
Audio re-direction
Clipboard support
Full Featured GUI
Connect to Multiple remote machines
16-bit Colour Support
Faster than VNC!

The full featured version, available to users who have donated, include all of the above features plus:

Windows Vista connectivity
Automatic Stack checking
Persistant Cache (upto 20 mb)
Connection Bar
Mouse Adjustments
Performance Increases
Many bug fixes

Please visit HD-Zone to download.

There is a screenshot of the latest version running on OS4 final here:

Thank you for your continued support! The full-featured and modern client would not have been possible without your continued and generous donations.

Don't suppose you could knock up a client that works in reverse could you?

i.e. connect from remote PC into Amiga.
That! Would be mighty handy!
(Heck, i'd pay for such a program!)

 Re: Remote Desktop 2007-1 now available!
I have a working samba installation (thanks Mikey_C!)
I can ping and assign the other two machines on my network,
but i was never able to use RDesktop, either it's timing out
or, worse, locking up.

Anyone care to give a how-to, please?

I'd love to switch off the XP monitor once and for all...

@Raziel

You're using XP PRO i assume? XP Home doesn't support Remote Desktop IIRC.
Anyways, if you're using XP Pro then the only configuration needed on the Windows side should be to open the System Properties, selecting the "Remote" tab and hooking the "Allow users to connect..." box.
Also, if the Windows user you use to connect from the Amiga side isn't an Administrator you'll have to add the user by hitting the "Select Remote Users" button in the same window and then choosing the user.
After hitting OK the Windows Firewall should configure itself to allow Remote Desktop connections. A problem *might* occur if you're using some other firewall software such as the Norton package (spit).

@ Mikey_C

While anything is technically possible, at this point it would be too much of a hack. We need proper support in the OS for this to be done correctly. That is something I can talk to the OS4 development team about.

I would love capability too, but please don't hold your breath :)

I will need to get quite a bit more donation money (perhaps a bounty would be required) in order to get a server project done.

I would also like to have a working server. Please PM me about what OS support you need for it and I'll see what I can do.
