Update of the Remote Desktop Client
With version 1.3.1cvs of 12th January 2005 the Remote Desktop Client has taken care of a few bugs, such as those with iconification. It's also been adapted to compiler GCC 3.x. Also there's now a native version for Amiga OS4.

For the AmigaOS4-Version, AmiSSL V1 with all the ciphers is required as well as the "OS4 glue files" to be found there.

Furthermore, the Remote Desktop Client FAQ has been expanded. The authors urge you to look at the appropriate section if you have a problem.

This update was made possible through Martin Blom, Jrg Strohmayer and Darren Eveland.

The "remote Desktop Protocol" (RDP) makes it possible to access over a network applications that are implemented on a Windows terminal server. On the user side only a representation of the respective application takes place (screenshot).
