RDSConfig.exe – Adjust RDP Permissions Free Tool

RDPSoft’s New Free Tool, RDSConfig.exe, Allows You To Adjust RDP Permissions GranularlyGreetings again, everyone. Last year I wrote a blog article about how it was tricky to adjust RDP security permissions on Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2016 session hosts to allow non-Administrators to shadow Remote Desktop Users. Back in Windows Server 2008, Microsoft provided an MMC snap-in called TSConfig.msc, also known as the Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration tool. This tool would allow you to adjust a whole host of properties regarding session host behavior and rules for user sessions, including who could connect to and who could administer different aspects of Remote Desktop Services on that host.

TSConfig.msc, as well as TSAdmin.msc (for active user and process management), were removed from the RDS management tools starting in Windows Server 2012. The RDSM (Remote Desktop Services Manager) available within the Server Manager console in Windows Server 2012, allows you to do *some* of the administrative functions that you used to do in TSAdmin.msc and TSConfig.msc respectively, but not all of them. Even in Windows Server 2016, RDSM has not reached feature parity with the old set of tools.
