The RDP protocol

3 years ago I tried rdesktop on a Windows 2000 advanced server. I found this remote desktop solution definitely better than VNC. The pros of RDP against VNC are :

  • Separate user session (allow several user to work in same time on the same server).
  • Faster (lower latency and bandwidth).

The good news is that a RDP server is included in Windows XP pro (it was not in w2k).
