Various Java RDP clients can connect to the service. The clients properJavaRDP and rdesktop, have been shown to work.

Supported RDP Clients

  • Windows - RDP client version 7.0 or newer.
  • Mac - RDP client version 8.0 or newer.
  • Mobile Devices - Microsoft Remote Desktop 8.0 or higher for Android or iOS. Other 3rd party RDP applications may work, but have not been tested by Right Networks.

Linux connectivity and printing is compatible with Right Networks, however technical support for these products is limited to best effort troubleshooting.
