MRC uses the settings you configure in the RDP Properties window when it connects to remote systems using the built-in RDP view. The RDP Properties dialog options are the same whether you open the dialog from the Mini Remote Control Host Properties dialog for a specific remote system or the global Default Host Properties dialog.

The following sections describe the options on each tab of the RDP Properties dialog.
