Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) is a proprietary protocol developed by Microsoft, which provides a user with a graphical interface (GUI) to connect to another computer over a network connection. The user employs RDP client software
for this purpose, while the other computer must run RDP server software.
Clients exist for most versions of Microsoft Windows (including Windows Mobile), Linux, Unix, OS X, iOS, Android, and other operating systems. RDP servers are built into Windows operating systems; an RDP server for Unix and OS X also exists.
Microsoft currently refers to their official RDP client software as Remote Desktop Connection, formerly "Terminal Services Client".
