What works

Connection, full-screen mode, file system redirection, saving .rdp files, all different screen sizes,

What does not

colours funny in Windows 2000 mode - but Windows 98 or ME seems to work best.

Crashes when selecting "Local Resources" tab unless native winscard.dll override used. Often does not get focus when starting full screen mode (work-around minimise and then maximise again).

Maximising and restoring the window works best when "Allow Window Manager to control Windows" is unticked, but if Remote DEsktop crashes, its much easier to close when window manager is managing the window because you can click on the X button and do "force quit".

Regular quit/Log off/Disconnect


What was not tested

Device redirection (serial port, printer, etc)

"Start the following program on connection"

Additional Comments

Somewhat unreliable. When logging on, sometimes causes the whole computer to freeze up. Regular users probably will not be able to avoid this thing crashing the machine at some stage or another.
