Remote desktop into Windows 7 and Server 2008 from XP

remote desktop 7.0 client

I’m not sure how I missed this, but Microsfoft released an update to the remote desktop client called Remote Desktop Connection 7.0 for Windows XP, Windows Vista SP1, and Windows Vista SP2. It basically allows for these clients to remote desktop  into Windows 7 and Window Server 2008.

This is great because I’ve lowered the security settings on Windows 7 in order to allow for my old XP boxes to remote in. Now I can just update this client and I’m good to go with the higher security settings that come default in Windows 7.

Also keyboard ninjas, just type ‘mstsc’ to load up the remote desktop client from Run or the Search Box.
