Remote Display Protocol (RDP), also known as Remote Display Protocol, is an Ethernet-based protocol for application sharing & network input/output control. It allows a client computer to communicate with a remote machine; usually by connecting via a secure data transmission channel such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL). The server requires both the client and server to authenticate themselves to the remote host; prior to creating the necessary transactions.
Remote Display Protocol (RDP) Session
An RDP session is a data-binding protocol in which a client computer and server are specified and started. The session can be terminate at any time by the user or the administrator of the remote windows server. An RDP client can use one of the many different RDP clients; each of which supports a number of standard RDP functions. A remote desktop connection may be establish using RDP through a dedicated server connection; through a low-level RDP client such as mine Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) or Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).
As an example, an organization may have a number of local computers on which a range of remote desktop session can be run. Each user can be assign a password and can then gain read/write access to the appropriate ports. The primary computer running the rDP session can connect to multiple workstations through a group of remotely connected workstations. For example, when a new employee is added, his or her password will be communicated between the primary & secondary computers. This allows the new employee to log into the desktop of the other computers and see what work is being perform remotely.
RDP for Remote Employees
In today’s world, companies that utilize remote employees are able to save money by buying RDP instead of long-distance calls, hotel stays, and mileage fees. By communicating over a simple high-speed connection, employees can get access to their computers from any location in the world. It is also possible for users to work more efficiently; because of the greater ease with which they can move between workstations with the help of remote desktop software such as RDP.
In addition to saving on travel, and avoiding mileage expenses, employees save on payroll expenses by using High Speed RDP. Rather than issuing a large number of paper checks; the correct amount can be quickly scan and entered into a virtual personal accounting program. This is especially helpful for large companies that generate a large number of cash flows. A virtual personal accounting program such as RDP will allow the company to enter all employee information into single database; rather than printing out various checks. In addition, this type of remote connection enables a company to access its finances and transactions; as if it were taking place in the office.
With the introduction of remote session capability on the Windows XP platform, companies no longer need to limit the range of resources available to employees. RDP allows a user to view his or her computer screen from any location that has an internet connection. A new era of remote access is now available for companies that require a fully integrated operating system, virtualization technologies, and advanced technical support.
