I am trying to change what app to use for rdp. The default is "Remote Desktop Connection.app", but I want to use CoRD. I have changed it in the ui, but it doesn't seem to stick. I went into prefs.js, and that appears to be ignored. I ended up changing the default app in the jar, which seems to work fine but is obviously a kludge.

Love the extension :-).

  • I played around with this some more, and ended up removing the special handling for Max in instancesview.js (basically the rdpToMac stuff). I also changed the default rdp command on mac to be:

    return ["/usr/bin/open", "-W rdp://Administrator:${pass}@${host}"];

    This should allow any default rdp client to be used (assuming it supports the url syntax, which most do I believe).
