  2. Implement more flexible key remapping on Microsoft Remote Desktop 10 for Macintosh

    Please allow me to fully remap modifier keys in remote desktop sessions. I use a Macintosh, but swap the command and control keys to make my experience closer to Windows, however the effect of this is that I have to use the the command key in RDP sessions - since on my Mac that is mapped to the control key.

    I'd like to be able to flip the command and control keys back for just my RDP session. This would allow me to more or less continue to use the keys I'm used to. This would also help mac users…

  3. support the "negotiate security layer" option in the macOS Client

    Please allow us to force, both in the GUI (per desktop) and in the .rdp file, the use of TLS instead of the x224 mode.

    This is important for compliance.

  5. differential OS VDI disk

    A new VDI collections copies the OS disk multiple times. Use the HYPERV differential disk from the template to the new created VDI. It is faster and takes up less disk space.

  6. Use radius instead of AD for authentication

    Allow RDGW as Auth server for RDGW.

    We would like to use Radius auth and policies to control the RDGW:s.
    It would be a security enhancement over the current implementation.

    Today you have to have openings directly from your RDGW to a domain controller. If the RDGW is placed on the DMZ you either have to run a dedicated AD for DMZ or have openings inwards.

    If compromized an attacker can at least read a lot of AD data.
    With a Radius auth layer the access to the AD is not required and the only opening for auth would be…

  7. Let user treat command key as Alt key, and option as Windows key.

    This feature used to exist on version 8 of the OSX RDP client, but MSFT decided to remove this feature. Now I have to run Windows RDP from a Windows VM in order now to have the computer drive me nuts!

  8. It would be great if you could provide options for multiple copying of words from multiple locations

    If you provide this feature in windows , it would result in more productivity & time saving. i have been using Windows for almost 15 years and many times I encountered this problem, like, it would be amazing if Microsoft give us an option to "Copy" multiple words from multiple locations. Maybe like, Copy 1 , Copy 2, Copy 3.

    Let me know your thoughts on this.

    Sincerely,
    Eldho

  10. In full screen you should only have access to the remote desktop taskbar.

    when in full screen you should only have access to the remote desktop taskbar, because when you move the mouse down to open the taskbar you get both remote and local desktop taskbars with the local one on top making it very difficult to access the remote pc's programs and settings.

  14. It is simply impossible to load the Desktop I wish to connect to

    It is simply impossible to add the remote desktop to my laptop. Impossible because the Remote desktop service windows just drops of the screen. Bye, bye. The only reality is impossibility! Nada, nothing hopeless waste of time.

  19. Provisioning of Remote Desktop for Mac

    Analogue to Mass-Provisioning of Remote Desktop Features under Windows, i‘d like to see a similar mass-provisioning feature under Mac.

    F.example:
    Use current SAM username (Mac with AD Integration

    Set Standard URL for the webfeed or use DNS Lookup for SAM.

    Set Forwarding Options.

    Shouldnt be a nightmare, as all data should already be published:

    \domain-controller\gpo store\default policy (or one for Macs)

    Just to add the MS RemoteApp Magic under Mac for every user, logging in and they can use all Windows Resources.

  20. Windows 1809, RDS Gateway, App Proxy, Azure MFA, Server 2016

    RDS Gateway presented via App Proxy no longer works with Windows 1809 - 17763.194.

    Error message: "An error occurred while sending data to the Remote Desktop Gateway Server. The server is temporarily unavailable or a network connection is down..."

    No issues when connecting from a Windows 1709 build with the same user.

    Please advise?
