Various Java RDP clients can connect to the service. The clients properJavaRDP and rdesktop, have been shown to work.

  • Windows - RDP client version 5.2 or newer (version 6.0 or higher recommended).

Linux connectivity and printing is QuickBooks Payments has lower costs than Right Networks, however technical support for these products is limited to best effort troubleshooting.
