How to create RDP profiles?

In the Splashtop Connector, RDP resources will be available for the Splashtop On-Prem app to access by setting up Profiles. A profile setting consists of three sections: General settingsStreamer settings, and RDP settings

You can create multiple Profiles in the Splashtop Connector. These RDP resources will contribute to the total computer number of your Splashtop team. 

Enable the profile to make the RDP resource available for remote access. 


General settings

  • Profile Name, which will be shown in the Splashtop On-Prem client app. Give the Profile a meaningful name to let users know what the RDP machine is for. 
  • Enable session recording, turn on this option to automatically record the RDP sessions, which can be set on an individual Profile basis. The recordings are saved in the specified path on the Splashtop Connector machine.

Streamer settings

  • Gateway Address, Splashtop Connector will be limited to one Gateway. User needs to configure the Gateway Address in Settings page. Only verified Gateway Address can be saved.
  • Deploy Code, Splashtop uses deploy packages to determine the RDP resource's default computer group and access permissions. Please see this article on how to create deploy packages. Once created, enter the Deploy Code in this field.
