Connect to RDP Resources

Last modified on October 4, 2023

  1. Click on the RDP name in your GUI, or execute sdm connect [servername] at the command line.

  2. Open your RDP client (StrongDM supports the Microsoft Remote Desktop client on Windows and macOS—not the Remote Desktop app).

  3. Under ‘PC Name’ or the equivalent in your RDP client, enter localhost:PORT, replacing PORT with the port assigned to your RDP server in the StrongDM client.

  4. Under ‘User Account’ or the equivalent, enter any string. This is purely for client-side validation and is not used in the authentication process.

  5. Save your connection, and then connect.
