In my new job I'm accessing a lot of remote machines. Windows servers via Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) and Linux / Unix servers via SSH.

I have both the Remote Desktop application and Putty available but managing all these connections is a bit tedious.

I did a bit of research and discovered mRemoteNG.

mRemoteNG is an open source, tabbed, multi-protocol, remote connections manager. It allows you to view all of your remote connections in a simple yet powerful tabbed interface.

It basically provides a single location to manage all those connections in one location. It provides a nice clean interface with tabs which I find very useful when connecting to multiple servers at the same time. In addition to RDP and SSH it supports the following protocols:

  • VNC (Virtual Network Computing)
  • ICA (Citrix Independent Computing Architecture)
  • Telnet (TELecommunication NETwork)
  • HTTP/HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol)
  • rlogin
  • Raw Socket Connections
