  1. Windows Desktop client list of connections instead of icons

    In the Windows Desktop client (Remote Desktop for WVD), there appears to be a limit of 15 characters in a connection name before it gets truncated and ... is added. This causes names to be indistinguishable if they are long, and a primary descriptor is at the end. For example:
    CompanyName-Department-Prod-EastUS
    CompanyName-Department-Prod-WestUS
    CompanyName-Department-Prod-NorEuro
    CompanyName-Department-Dev-SouthEast
    etc...

    The only way to see the available connections is by icon. Add functionality in the Windows Desktop client for list view, and functionality to configure a default.

  3. import list of machines into remote desktop (windows store)

    In remote desktop connection manager you were able to import a list of servers to use. I would love to see that feature added to the remote desktop store app.

  8. computer networks

    Computer networks are the basis of communication in IT. They are used in a huge variety of ways and can include many different types of network. A computer network is a set of computers that are connected together so that they can share information. The earliest examples of computer networks are from the 1960s, but they have come a long way in the half-century since then.

  15. openssh for windows support socket multiplex (controlMaster option)

    For a server that enters a dynamic password to log in, it is really annoying to enter a password every time. It is important to support multiplex sockets like linux ssh.

  17. The current auditing of LAPS password access events are not fine-grained

    The current auditing of LAPS password access events are not fine-grained and it becomes very difficult for an administrator to separate LAPS events with other population of 4662 which are huge in number. May be Microsoft can distinguish the LAPS password access event.
