Remote Desktop Manager Free is intended to help you manage your remote connections from a single app. In this regard, it supports practically all existing technologies, including RDP, SSH, VPNs, Web, VNC, Telnet, ICA/HDX, ARD, TeamViewer, ConnectWise Control and LogMeIn.

The tool has a neat interface, which resembles more a Windows program than a macOS app. In this respect, it comes with ribbons and tabs to facilitate navigating through its multiple features. Besides, there is a navigation panel from which you can easily manage remote connections. Likewise, there is a dashboard for readily accessing common operations.

By the way, one of the first operations you need to perform is adding new entries. Fortunately, it is very easy to find the type of entry you are looking for thanks to their being organized into such categories as General, Sessions, Information, Contacts, Credentials, VPN and Template.

In addition to connections, the application comes with other useful tools, like Password Generator, Translation Manager and Port Generator. Similarly, it lets you execute various remote operations, including TraceRoute, Wake On Lan, Ping, Port Scan, Event Viewer and Inventory Report. What is more, you can expand its features via third-party libraries and software.

Regrettably, this free edition is not intended for team work and, and as a result, it does not allow sharing databases and vaults or generating audits and reports. It is also a shame that it does not support role-based access control system and two-factor authentication either. more
