Remote Desktop Connection Manager (RDCMan) manages multiple remote desktop connections. It is useful for managing server labs where you need regular access to each machine such as automated checkin systems and data centers. It is similar to the built-in MMC Remote Desktops snap-in, but more flexible. This is the perfect tool, if you are managing multiple machine and try to connect using traditional Remote Desktop Connection. You can remotely manage all the machines using this single tool. This may include physical machine as well as virtual machines. Basically this provides RDP connectivity to multiple systems using single interface. Following is the typical user interface of RDCMan.
