The version of RDP is entirely dependent upon the version installed in the End client device and the back end Operating system being utilised as a guest.

I found that upgrading my Windows XP guests to Remote Desktop Connection 6.x and using RDC 6.x on the client really helped performance for remote user access.

Hello daleallenc,

did I get you right: You've installed a RDP 6 Server on your XP-Desktops and use a RDP 6 Client on your Client-Side? I thought RDP 6 would only be available with Windows Vista? Could you please tell me, where to geht this RDP 6 Server? It would be very helpfull for me!

Thank you and regards

Sven

To clarify, RDC 6.0 is available for Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 through Windows Update (use Custom, not Express) or as a redistributable download. Vista SP1 uses RDC 6.0.6001, which I believe came with Vista (or at least SP1). I have both XP VMs and 2003 terminal servers which I updated to use RDC 6.0. I also updated our user's PCs and laptops to RDC 6.x.

My environment is all about remote access, not local use (even though it's available for local access). Updating to RDC 6.x on both the guest/terminal server side, and the client side gave a noticeable improvement to our user's remote experience.

We don't have any thin clients, so I can't comment on that aspect.
