I want to connect to a RDP connection until it is successful (e.g. server restart). There is currently no way to do this (support says). So I want to do a feature request for a future version of RoyalTS.
This feature is available in competitors' software (Devolutions RDM). Simple feature.
Any input from RoyalTS team?
thank you for the feedback and the feature request. This feature is already on our todo list but we cannot really tell when it will be available. As trivial this may seem, it's quite some work to make this a robust feature. But while we are here already, maybe you can help me to find the best way to implement that in Royal TS. Right now we are planning the following:
The ideas sounds great to me. :)
Thanks & regards
Here's the scenario that I typically face this problem in.
I'm rebooting a machine and the connection is closed to the remote (windows server) PC. That's fine. However, now I'd like to have the option to "connect when the machine comes back online." I'm assuming this is done by continuous ping and that once the machine responds, an attempt is made to then RDP back in.
Either of your two scenarios works as well. I'd say, take a look at Devolutions RDM to see their implementation. Its simple and stays in the background. Its integrated with their command tasks. A small window pops up and shows a few lines about the host being online (tested by constant ping) and if it can remote in. You can see a spinning/loading icon where it is attempting to connect.
Hope this helps!
Thank you for the additional information, Jarel. This is very helpful!
+1 on this feature, is there any ETA?
Thanks for your vote, Raffaele. There's still no ETA but we hope to have that in V5...
Just wondering if this has been implemented yet..
it hasn't been implemented yet but it's still on our roadmap for V5. Stay tuned!
Hi, any Updates about this Feature?
Its something i missing most and would be really, really Helpfull in my Workflows.
I would really appreciate this feature as well. My scenario is that our office VPN will automatically drop a connection after 8 hours. I'll have 5-10 RoyalTS RDP windows open, and when the VPN drops, even though I can reconnect within 60 seconds, RoyalTS goes through it's "Attempting Reconnect 1 of 3" and goes through those three attempts in less than 10 seconds. Therefore, after reconnecting to the VPN, I have to re-establish my sessions to the the servers, and even though that only takes a minute or two, it's irritating to do that every single day. If we could simply have it wait 30 seconds between each re-connection attempt (as opposed to the 5 seconds currently set for that), or have it attempt to reconnect perhaps 10 times instead of 3, that would solve my issue.
If we could have it configurable instead of set number that would be better. 2 fields Number of retries or infinit. And delay before retrys.
