Terminals Many IT admins work with multiple RDP connections every day. We may stick with what we have through the built-in Remote Desktop Connections tool or we can up our game through Terminals -- a secure, multi-tab terminal service/RDC that is much more robust and easy to use for multiple system management. Supported server protocols include Windows RDP, VNC, VMRC, SSH, Telnet, RAS, ICA Citrix, HTTP, and HTTPS. What I really like about the install is that Terminals finds my current RDP connections and automatically imports those into the tool, making it a snap to get started. The rest is fairly intuitive. Be sure to peruse the documentation to get familiar with Terminal’s more advanced features.
