RDPWin on Terminal Servers
There are two ways to setup RDPWin to work properly on a Terminal
Server. If you are using the key card interface, which is dependent on the station number being
the same for the workstation, choose option 1.
Option 1 - Required if Using the Key Card Interface
- Each workstation has a unique user name and password.
- The "station" environment variable must be set as a User
Variable in each Terminal Server session and must be unique for each
Option 2 - Station Environment Variable Set as System Variable
Option 2 allows the "Station" environment variable to be set once as
a System Variable. When RDPWin is started, it will increment the
"Station" number that was set as the System Variable based on the
connection number to the Terminal Server. When using this option you
must reserve a block of station numbers based on the number of users
that will be logging into the Terminal Server.
- Workstations can use the same user name and password to login to
the terminal server.
- The "Station" environment variable must be set as a System
Variable on the terminal server.
