How to create RDP profiles?

In the Splashtop Connector, RDP resources will be available for the Splashtop Business app to access by setting up Profiles. A profile setting consists of three sections: General settings, Streamer settings, and RDP settings

You can create multiple Profiles in the Splashtop Connector. These RDP resources will contribute to the total number of computers on your Splashtop team. 

Enable the profile to make the RDP resource available for remote access. 



General settings

  • Profile Name, which will be shown in the Splashtop Business client app. Give the Profile a meaningful name to let users know what the RDP machine is for. 
  • Enable session recording, Turn this on to automatically record sessions for this
    resource. Recordings are saved in the specified path on the Splashtop Connector
    machine (See Settings -> General)

Streamer settings

  • Deploy code, Enter a Splashtop deployment package code to determine the
    RDP resource's default computer group and access permissions. Please see this article on how to create deploy packages. Once created, enter the deployment code in this field.


RDP Settings

  • Mode, Splashtop Connector supports both RDP for individual desktops, and RDS
    for terminal servers. RDS will require Windows Server and RDS licenses.
  • Pool Size, If RDS is chosen, set the pool size, which means how many users can
    connect to RDS virtual desktops simultaneously. The pool size will contribute to
    the total number of computers on the Splashtop team.
  • Remote Computer, you can pre-configure a remote computer's IP/DNS or ask the user to input this info when connecting to the machine.
    • Ask user to specify the remote computer to connect to requires users
      to enter the RDP machine’s IP/hostname upon connecting. This may be
      useful for ad-hoc support.

      preconfigure the RDP machine's specific IP/hostname and port.

    • Remote App alias, or Remote App full path, depending on your choice
    • Optional remote application parameters, you need to enable remote application parameter support on RDS server.
