  1. Please allow smart card connectivity on android

    I can remote in from my samsung tab s3 to my windows desktop, but it won't allow me to login as the remote machine doesn't recognize the smart card in my tablet USB-C connector. My machine requires I have the smart card plugged in but the remote app for android doesn't seem to support usb redirecting so it doesn't recognize the card

  2. Windows Admin Center add feature for Microsoft Remote Assistance for desktop

    RDP is already a feature. If you were looking to assist users that had an active session on a machine and could implement the Offer Remote Assistance from inside the WAC with a button push, it'd make life easier.

  5. Remove insecure protocols from IIS

    Default IIS HTTPS settings should get a good grade on https://www.ssllabs.com/
    If legacy operating system support is needed, that should have to be enabled on a per-site basis.

  6. Outlook: reduce mails during holidays and longer out off office periods; sender gets back the e-mail.

    When on holiday or during longer out of office periods Outlook-inboxes become overcrowded. Back at work there is a lot of work, just opening those e-mails. Very often you don't need to react anymore.
    Outlook automatic answers tell senders what is the reason of absence and give indications about when you are present again.
    E-mail-senders notice only that there will be an out of office reply, but can't see what's the reason and the period of out of office. This is too little information for helping you to decide sending the massage or not.

    My suggestions: when making an out…

  7. AGPM

    Continue support and updates for Advanced Group Policy Management. Our company uses AGPM extensively and would like to see future enhancements and support continued. If there is a replacement Microsoft product, it doesn't seem to be found.

  9. Extranet Smart Lockout featre (ADFS Windows Server 2016)

    Hi,

    In terms of the Extranet Smart Lockout featre (ADFS Windows Server 2016), it would be really good if, instead of merely locking out users' acocunts whom are the suspected target of a brute force attack, to banning the source IP of the attack instead.

    This could operate in a similar fashion to the Linux-based fail2ban whereby an offending IP address gets put in 'jail' for a timeout threshold.

    I think this is a better option than punishing the user (who is locked out as result of brute force attempt that is out of their control).

  12. RD client missing the local resources option

    In the normal RDP client there is an option to connect local resources to your RDP session. Unfortunately this is not available in de RD Client (available in the Windows Store). Please add this functionality also in this client.

  17. ADFS MFA Password Change

    ADFS allows for the end user to change their password Externally if a specific end point is enabled on the ADFS Server. I'd like the ability to protect ADFS Password changes via ADFS to be protected by MFA. If a users credentials are compromised, the hacker could change the password on the employee as they know their "current" password.

  19. add command line to Windows Remote Desktop for macOS

    I deal a lot with windows VMs hosted in a cloud environment. I use a CLI to extract details about those VMs in order to connect (IPs, username, password, etc...)

    I would love to be able to write a script that would extract the information and then connect without having to open up the GUI and copy paste the system information
