Opening a RDP file from html

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys

I'm not sure if its possible but I have a webpage and I want to be able to click a link and it open the rdp link to a local server.

I have the shortcut saved on the machine, I tried to href= location and it hasn't worked.

 

I'm still kinda new at this so could you let me know if what i want to do is possible.

 

thanks

by rdp i presume you mean remotedesktop, you need to add an URI scheme:

superuser.com forum has an answear for this:

You could use a custom URL protocol handler, but this would mean the URLs only worked on computers where you had set this up. I think you'd also need a program to handle taking the URL as remotedesktop://example.org and converting to /v:example.org - although a batch file could probably do this.
