Server - RDP tools to manage more RDP server/client connections

During these years I indicated several tools that give you ability to connect RDP to server/clients other than various capabilities (http/s connections with password saving, ssh, telnet etc etc)

Today I would like to summarize all this articles with an index articles adding latter tool that I found, in free edition here.

1.) Remote Desktop Manager

If you want to compare differences you can review this link too:

2.) Royal Ts 

is nice tool (it is not free) to have a single point to connect to server in RDP without need to open plenty of windows and overriding user and password insert every time that you connect to servers.

Here is latest free version

Version 1.5.x Downloads (Freeware):

All previsious version can be found on this link:

Latest version (you need to pay to use it) is:

Royal TS v Version 3.1.4

A good alternative it is utilizing mRemote that is free (but if I am not wrong software is no longer updated) but it work excellently in any case

mRemoteNG supports the following protocols:
  • RDP (Remote Desktop/Terminal Server)
  • VNC (Virtual Network Computing)
  • ICA (Citrix Independent Computing Architecture)
  • SSH (Secure Shell)
  • Telnet (TELecommunication NETwork)
  • HTTP/HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol)
  • rlogin
  • Raw Socket Connections
Other two tools are:



Tips - MAC addresses and producer correlation, subnet calculator and

Due to MAC address that is used from an ethernet device you could have opportunity to determine some vendor information based on that.

For that purpose I am indicating a web site (there are plenty similar on the web) that can be used for this search purpose.

The same website has a simple form to calculate, from IP and subnet, all other useful network information:

If finally you need to understand which is the service associated to a port number you can review this link too:

Excel - Find Vertical

There is an interesting function in excel that permit you to search a cell value (A2) on a differente Excel sheet. ('PDQ original Data'!1:1048576)

This function will search, this value A2 on first column on different shee ('PDQ original Data'!1:1048576).

If a value will be found function, function result will be correspondent cell  column field value (13).

Last function value should be False as in following examples:

=CERCA.VERT(A2;'PDQ original Data'!1:1048576;13;FALSO)

= VLOOKUP(A2;'PDQ original Data'!1:1048576;13;FALSE)

More information can be found at following Microsoft Article

Powershell - CRC - Md5 Calculation

If you need to calculate CRC you can use this Microsoft tool  (FCIV)

Here is a syntax example but you could obviously use a different syntax

Get-ChildItem C:\Scripts, C:\Test, "C:\Documents and Settings\Kenmyer\Desktop" -filter "*.ps1"

[update 2016.04.09]

Here it is a free tool about MD5 Calculation:

Here is syntax to verify DB copy status:

Articoli di riferimento:


To resolve the issue update the content index on the server on which it has failed.

If precedent solution does not resolve you need to start/restart specific Exchange services:
