Feature Request: Further enhancement to RDP connection options
Hi all, been using the beta of version 9 for a while and the RDP incorporation is great but it's missing a few options I feel.
Would like to see the options to utilize a gateway hostname, workspace id's, loadbalancer info using the TSV protocol and signscope for connecting into an RDS RDP session.

A sample taken from an internal RDP would be as follows:

screen mode id:i:2
use multimon:i:0
session bpp:i:32
prompt for credentials on client:i:1
server port:i:3389
allow font smoothing:i:1
full address:s:rds.domainname
workspace id:s:rds.domainname
use redirection server name:i:1
loadbalanceinfo:s:tsv://MS Terminal Services Plugin.1.Storage
alternate full address:s:alt.domainname
signscope:s:Full Address,Alternate Full Address,Use Redirection Server Name,Server Port,GatewayHostname,GatewayUsageMethod,GatewayProfileUsageMethod,GatewayCredentialsSource,PromptCre dentialOnce,RedirectDrives,RedirectPrinters,RedirectCOMPorts,RedirectSmartCards,RedirectClipboard,De vicesToRedirect,DrivesToRedirect,LoadBalanceInfo

don't know how feasible it would add this in but I would imagine it would be useful to quite a few people

Hi karimicus,

We saw these as four feature requests but not being the RDP experts, we may find we get some functionality "hand-in-hand". :)

I have added this thread to the following feature requests in our product enhancement database:
  • RDP: Add RD Gateway support (RDS)
  • RDP: Allow specification of TSVUrl for load balancing hints
  • RDP: Support Workspace ID specification
  • RDP: Support signscope and signatures for RDP connections
Should a future release of SecureCRT include any of the above features, notification will be posted here.

If you prefer direct email notification, send an email to and include "Feature Request - Forum Thread #14430" in the subject line or use this form from the support page of our website.

Thanks Brenda,
Just thinking of ways to expand the usefulness of the RDP functionality which has been added to SecureCRT.
