Remote Desktop Manager is an interesting application that makes it easy to manage all your remote connections and virtual machines.

The program works with a wide range of programs and technologies. So whether you're making a remote connection via Citrix, FTP, LogMeIn, Microsoft Remote Assistance/ Remote Desktop, PC Anywhere, SSH, TeamViewer, Telnet, Terminal Services or VNC, your connection details can be held here.

And Remote Desktop Manager is just as compatible with virtualisation tools, being able to connect to Microsoft Virtual PC, Oracle VirtualBox, and the full range of VMware products.

The main benefit of the free Standard Edition comes in this ability to assemble and access all your remote connections from one place.

Upgrade to the Enterprise Edition, though, and you'll gain many additional features.

A Computer Importation Wizard makes it easier to import connection details, for instance. The program can store your user names and passwords, and log you in automatically. Session logs record what you're doing on every connection, and integrated scripting tools allow you to automate many common tasks. Prices start at $34.99 for a single licence, and you can find out more at the Remote Desktop Manager site.

Verdict

A useful tool for organising your connection and virtual machine details. The free Standard version is seriously hobbled by its inability to store user names and passwords, though
