And, one other question. When the server is in this state and returning 0x4 to the v.10 Mac client, what errors (if any) do Windows Remote Desktop Connection (MSTSC.EXE) and the v.8 Mac client return. Based on my research, in some cases, MSTSC returns 'Internal Error' and the v.8 Mac client returns 'Connection Reset by Peer'. Dec 18, 2012 RDM is an incredibly complex and powerful application once you start looking under the hood – the amount of functionality is mind-boggling. If we tried to ship a first version for Mac or mobile incorporating everything from RDM, it would take a very long time!
Tier 1: Julia is guaranteed to build from source and pass all tests on these platforms when built with the default options. Official binaries are always available and CI is run on every commit to ensure support is actively maintained. Tier 2: Julia is guaranteed to build from source using the default build options, but may or may not pass all.
Over the years, we’ve received some feedback from IT pros who weren’t thrilled with the fact that RDM didn’t always play well with Microsoft ActiveX. Some of the main headaches included:
- When logging off or disconnecting from a client server, the RDM window would hang and have to be shut down.
- If an open VPN session ended and users weren’t present (i.e. if they had stepped away from their computer or device), RDM would hang and crash.
- Sometimes, when using ActiveX, RDM would crash for no apparent reason.
You’ll hopefully note, however, that I used the word “included” up there instead of “includes”, because I have some wonderful pain-relieving news: FreeRDP is now integrated in RDM as an alternative to ActiveX!Switching over to FreeRDP is fast and easy. Here’s what to do:
- Go to File – Options – RDP
- Switch your default RDP type from ActiveX to RDP (FreeRDP).
What if you want to apply the change to specific RDP sessions instead of all of them? No problem:
- Choose a session to edit.
- Select the General side menu and then click on the Advanced
In the RDP Version dropdown menu, select RDP (FreeRDP). (Note that if you select Default, RDM will automatically use the option set under File – Option – RDP.)

There might still be some limitations as what FreeRDP can do, but please don’t be shy, tell us and we will try to fix it as soon as possible.
You can finally put away that bottle of Tylenol, because you’ll no longer get a migraine from RDM and ActiveX. Just call me Dr. Jenny, MD! (Hey, maybe I should get a TV series?)
