Remote PC Client remembers addresses of the last 15 PCs you connected
to and lets you choose them from a drop down list instead of typing them over
and over again in the address box. But if you have more than 15 PCs to control,
want to organize the PCs in folders, arrange them on your Desktop, or specify startup settings,
you need to create Remote PC Shortcuts.
Remote PC Shortcuts are small files that can be placed on the Desktop, in a
Windows Start Menu, on the Quick Launch bar, or in disk folders and let you
launch a window with a screen of a remote PC by just double-clicking a
To create a Remote PC Shortcut, connect to a remote PC and save the connection info
into a file by choosing Save As.. from the Connection Menu.
Remote PC shortcuts are text files with the .rpc extension. You can create them
manually. An example of a shortcut (the text beginning with // is used here for explanation purposes only and should not be used in a shortcut):
Host: 192.168.0.17 // address of a remote PC: network name, IP, domain name, or RPC number
Port: 34012 // ignored if Host specifies RPC number
Username: username //
Password: password //
Type: view // possible values: view, control, file. Remote PC Client
// automatically opens the specified view after connecting.
HostName: my home computer // any name to be dispayed instead of the host address in the title bar
BPP: 16 // possible values: 4, 8, 16, 32
ShowCursor: 0 // 1 - show remote cursor, 0 - do not show
RemoteFolder: c:\windows // full path to the initial folder on the remote host
LocalFolder: c:\windows // full path to the initial folder on the local host
FullScreen: 0 // 1 - start Remote PC Client in full-screen mode, 0 - start in window mode
Width: 400 // width of the program's window in pixels or 0 for default width
Height: 300 // height of the program's window in pixels or 0 for default height
Top: 100 // top position of the window or -1 for a default position
Left: 100 // left position of the window or -1 for a default position
All settings are optional. Some settings can be added only manually by editing an RPC shortcut file in any text editor.
