RD Tabs is a free alternative to Windows Remote Desktop Connection , or RDC. RD Tabs lets you connect to remote machines easily, in the same manner that you would do with RDC. However, the biggest advantage with RD Tabs is that it has a tabbed interface. So, if you connect to multiple remote machines, RD Tabs will show all of them in form of tabs, just like browsers show webpages in tabs. This ensures that your taskbar is not occupied with lot of RDC windows.
RD Tabs is one of the best alternative for Remote Desktop Connection that we have come across. It brings with it the ease of use of RDC, and adds to it configuration options that RDC seem to be missing. You can setup your favorites, store your connection settings (like RDC does), and also do command line scripting. It also lets you take screenshot of remote desktop.
