Login to microsoft remote desktop services

Describe the problem/error/question

I want to mimic the human interaction of running microsoft terminal services client and logging on to a remote MS RDS server and leaving the session open. Is there any node that’s capable of this in n8n?

What is the error message (if any)?

hello @Bahadur

No, n8n does not provide such functionality out of the box. It has a node called Execute Command, that can execute any commands on the n8n instance

Thanks @barn4k , I knew the execute command node, but I was wondering if there is a more to-the-point node among the hundreds out there :slight_smile:

Hey @Bahadur,

I can’t think of anything better than the execute command node either. What sort of tasks are you thinking about doing? Maybe it is a node we can look at making in the future.

Hey @Jon,

There is an archaic executable that only runs on a user’s login in the RDS server. It inserts a timestamp into a DB every 5 minutes.

now I check the DB for the entry and send an email alert if the entry is older than 5 minutes. however, I thought maybe in addition to send the email I can remote login to the RDS to remediate the situation as well. I’ll check potential command line solutions to this.

Even though I like having a huge arsenal nodes, I’m not sure there is much need for this one, since no one so far seems to have needed it :slight_smile:

Better to rewrite the script :slight_smile:
