MS-RDP: Microsoft's Remote Desktop Protocol
Microsoft's Remote Desktop Protocol (MS-RDP) is designed to provide remote display and input capabilities over network connections for Windows-based applications running on a server. When TS 4.0 was released, RDP was a new protocol based on an existing ITU T.120 family of protocols with limited features and performances. Windows 2000 Terminal Services and the RDP 5.0 protocol includes several critical new features together with some significant performance improvements over all types of network connections, including LAN, WAN, and dial-up.
