Create multiple connections in RDC version 2 beta
Authored by: garythemacguy on Feb 11, '08 01:53:04PM

Working in Server Admin, where the majority of our servers are MS servers, I use this extensively. I built up a core of settings files and now only rarely find that I have to create a new one.

There's one thing that rather bugs me with this latest version, but I've never quite been able to identify the trigger. Occasionally, the Caps Lock state gets inverted. There doesn't seem to be any way to fix it short of logging out the session and back in again. This is a nuisance, so I tend to just put up with having to remember to toggle the Caps Lock key when I'm in that session.

Has anyone else come across this issue? And more importantly, has anyone else come up with a fix?

Apart from that grumble, I'm pretty happy with it, and often have two or three sessions open for hours at a time.

Caps Lock: Me too! Unfortunately, no work around yet. Other than that, I find it a good tool.

CoRD: I found it unreliable.

Ditto. And I too found CoRD unreliable.

ditto here.. on both CAPS and CoRD -- pull up the virtual keyboard in windows and you can turn off CAPS lock on the remote machine. Create these files as discussed above and trigger them w/ a few keystrokes in quicksilver... the only way to remote onto my client SBS servers.

When is this RDC coming out of beta already, office is done, so where's the new RDC?

I have had the same issue. The bug seems to only show up when I leave an RDP session open and use Apple+Tab to switch windows. I use a program called Witch which allows me to not only switch between programs, but also to switch between the individual windows open from each running application. I have it set to Alt+Tab. This also seems to get the bug going. So far, the only fix for it I've even been close to finding has been to use the Apple+Tab and/or Alt+Tab combinations until the CAPS lock returns to normal.
