Join Greg Sowell for an in-depth discussion in this video RDP, part of Networking Foundations: Protocols and CLI Tools.
- [Voiceover] Remote desktop protocol was developed…by Microsoft to provide a graphical…terminal for remotely connected clients.…This functionality is also known…as terminal server or terminal services.…It listens for connections on TCP port 3389.…In essence, RDP allows a client to connect…to a server through a software interface.…The user is presented what looks like…a complete desktop through this application.…It can also run an application mode,…which loads a shortcut from the user's desktop…and appears as if it's a standard application.…
In reality it is an RDP session established from the server.…Every version of Windows since XP…has a copy of the RDP client installed.…A version of the RDP server was introduced…into Windows XP versions, save for home,…to act as a remote administration portal.…Terminal services have been available on Windows servers…since Windows NT4 Terminal Server edition.…Standard Windows servers since 2000 have included…terminal services allowing two users to connect…remotely for administrative purposes.…
Protocols are the lifeblood of modern communication. By the end of this course, you'll know what you need to troubleshoot any network connection and keep the communication flowing.
Note: This course maps to domain 3 of the MTA Networking Fundamentals exam.
