Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) is a proprietary protocol designed by Microsoft for use with its Window based computers. The typical user uses RDP client applications for this purpose, whilst the remote computer has to be running RDP server application. RDP is a form of Real-Time Communication Protocol (RTCP) and is used to share application states and information between multiple computers. The basic communication protocol is established over an Ethernet or Fast Ethernet network. The majority of modern smartphones are equipped with ports suitable for RDP.
