The “Advanced” tab enables modifications of some advanced remote desktop settings, like gateway settings or redirection settings.






Connect to Console

Similar to the /console or /admin switch. Requires Windows 2003 or later on the remote computer.

Network Level Authentication

The remote computer may require  NLA enabled (available on Win Vista/Server 2008 or later). If not checked and the connection is refused due to the missing NLA setting, Royal TS will retry to connect using this setting. A log entry will be created for those connection attempts.


Enable/disable clipboard sharing. For use of cut, copy and paste commands for files between a remote session and local computer the user must enable disk redirection.

Windows Keys

If enabled, all Windows key combinations (ALT-TAB, etc.) will be redirected to the remote session. Local key combinations are not effective as long as Royal TS is the application focus. Also refer to the keyboard shortcuts topic.

Cache Bitmaps

Caching bitmaps will increase screen composition performance but also result in more memory usage - especially when multiple connections are open.

Auto Reconnect

If the connection was interrupted, Royal TS will try to reconnect.

Background Input

When checked, the remote session will capture mouse events even when Royal TS does not maintain the application focus. Disabling background input is recommended, especially if session shadowing is enabled.


Compression enabled will improve your connection performance but will also result in higher CPU usage.

Auth. Level

Connect and do not warn me if server authentication fails:

If the identity of the remote computer can't be verified, Royal TS connects anyway.

Do not connect, if server authentication fails:

If the identity of the remote computer can't be verified, Royal TS will not connect.

Connect but warn me if server authentication fails:

If the identity of the remote computer can't be verified, Royal TS will issue a warning before it connects.

Gateway Server

Specify whether to connect through a gateway server or not. Selecting on demand will first try to establish a direct connection. If this is not possible, it will use the gateway server. See also: Gateway

Keyboard Layout

Use this field to force a specific keyboard layout on the remote desktop session.


So, for example, "00000409" would represent the default US English keyboard because "0409" is the US English language identifier. The Dvorak variation of the US English keyboard has an identifier of "00010409". Available keyboard layouts, listed by their keyboard layout identifiers, are offered in the registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layouts


Leave the field blank to use the default keyboard layout.



Control how audio from the remote session will be handled.

Redirect Audio Capture

If checked, audio recording devices (like a microphone on the local computer) will be made available in the remote session.

Redirect Disk Drives

If checked, the user gains access to all local volumes in the remote session. Clicking the button "Select Drives ..." allows the user to specify which volumes should be available in the remote session.

Redirect Printers

If checked, locally attached or connected printers are available in the remote session.

Redirect Smart Cards

Specify whether redirection of smart cards is allowed.

Redirect Ports

Specify whether redirection of local ports (like COM or LPT) is allowed.

Redirect DirectX

DirectX redirection is only supported with Windows 7 or later.

Allow Wallpaper

Allow or disable wallpaper display. Disable this option for slow network connections.

Allow Themes

Allow or disable theme display.

Aero (Desktop Composition)

Allow or disable Aero user interface. This is supported only on Windows Vista (Server 2008 with Desktop Experience enabled) or later.

Font Smoothing

Allow or disable font smoothing.
