Introduction
RDM+ (Remote Desktop for Mobiles) is a communication tool that gives you the unique
ability to connect to your desktop computer through the mobile device and interact with it
remotely. With Remote Desktop for Mobiles you can not only observe the remote desktop on the
screen of your mobile device but perform different usual keyboard and mouse commands using
instead phone's joystick or buttons.
RDM+ Desktop is available on English, German, French, Italian, Spanish and Japanese.
RDM+ consists of two components: the desktop part and the client module.

The desktop part should be installed on the remote computer.

The client module should be installed on your mobile device.
You should install both these components to control your computer through your mobile device.
Appendix A provides the information about downloading and installation of RDM+ Client on your
mobile device. In every RDM+ Client you will also find directions on how to work with a
mobile client.
System requirements:
RDM+ Desktop will work on any Intel-based Macs with minimal requirements to hardware
resources. The desktop part will work on Mac OS X 10.4 and higher . We recommend installation of
all latest OS service packs and updates for correct work of the internal commands.
Security:
RDM+ works in encrypted mode where all data, screen images, mouse movement and keys are
encrypted by 3DES (Triple DES) algorithm with 128 bits key. The 3DES key is generated randomly
each time at opening a session. This provides the most secure remote access solution. The
desktop part on a remote computer has a logging feature where all connections are written to the
log file.
Installing RDM+ Desktop on a computer
RDM+ Desktop allows you to control your Mac remotely from your mobile device. You should
install the desktop part of RDM+ on all computers you're going to manage remotely. Run the
installation file rdmplus_desktop_mac.dmg and follow the instructions of the installation wizard
to completely install the product.
You can download this file from our site: www.rdmplus.com
Note: RDM+ Desktop works on Intel-based Macs with Mac OS X 10.4 and higher.
RDM+ Desktop connects to the RDM+ Online Service as usual web browser (using HTTP requests
through port 80) and it does not require direct access to the computer or other special router
settings.
Computer registration in RDM+ Online Service
If your computer is not registered in RDM+ Online Service, you should fill the registration form
after the Desktop installation.
Note: Please specify an existing email address in registration form. You will receive automatic notification
about registration to this email address.

In the RDM+ Desktop each registered computer has a special computer number assigned at
registration in the service. If connection to the RDM+ Online Service is established and the
registration is completed successfully, the unique computer number will be assigned to your
computer. You will see this number on top of the application window. You can also check the
registration by selecting Registration Details menu item.
Note: RDM+ Desktop supports computer configurations with multiple displays starting from version 2.10.
RDM+ client on your mobile device must also support this feature.
Preparing for remote connection
To be able to connect to your computer you need to create a new account in RDM+ Desktop and
to denote afterwards the same account in a computer list of the mobile phone client.
In order to create a new account, press Add account button and enter the required information
into the appeared form. You can add up to three accounts.
In the dialog window, you should enter a new account name and a password (use any account
name and password). The account name is case insensitive but the password is case sensitive!
Note: In the computer list of the client module you should enter the password exactly as it was specified
in RDM+ Desktop. If you forget the account data the Support Team of SHAPE won’t be able to inform you
of this data because it is stored in RDM+ Desktop on your computer only. In this case you would need to
get back to your computer to look at the account and change the password.

Account is disabled
If you select this checkbox the user account will remain in account list and all its settings will be
stored, but you won’t be able to connect with the remote computer using this account. The
account becomes grey.
Read only access
If you select Read only access checkbox you will be able to view the remote desktop but you
won’t be able to make changes or control the remote desktop. Any commands from the client will
be ignored. Mouse and keyboard control will be disabled. The account is marked with a lock.
Note: You can delete the account by pressing Delete account button in the Edit account window.
RDM+ Desktop window
In order to start working with your computer remotely, you should have RDM+ Desktop to be
running on your computer and there should be 'Online' or 'Local network' status in the Desktop.
The status is written on the top of RDM+ Desktop window. Please read more about RDM+
statuses in the Preferences section.
Add the computer to the computer list in RDM+ Client installed on your mobile device. All
information you need is on the top of the RDM+ Desktop window (computer number and
account).
Note: If you want to be sure that nobody can connect to your computer press power button on the top
left corner of the application window to go Offline. To make the desktop accessible from any mobile
device turn it on by pressing the button again.
You can also check how many clients are connected to your computer simultaneously if you look at
Active connections row. To learn about current mobile connections in details press View button. If
you want to disconnect the mobile client select it from the list of current connections and press
Disconnect button.
