Command line support on MacOS

Hello,


I've been reading the support documentation of Royal TS, and the Command Line documentation looks to be very Windows oriented.

I wanted to use the same Command Line options on MacOS, but it doesn't seem to work.


If it's not supported, will it be in the future?

I'm asking because I can't seem to be able to use the "URI" properly when it comes to RDP session.


When I use "open" in my Terminal with a quoted "rtsx://..." URI, each time I add a query string, the connection fails without error (it looks like it tries to connect but closes immediately). Without the appended query string (that I use to name my adhoc connection window), it works flawlessly.


Kind regards,


RS


Hi,


we have no plans to add a CLI to Royal TSX at the moment.

We do however support the "rtsx" URI scheme as you mentioned.

Could you please give us an example of an URI you're using that fails?


Documentation for this feature is available here and here.


cheers,

Hello Felix,


Thank you for your answer.

I'm running Royal TSX within a bash script with the "open" command.

 

open -n -F -W "rtsx://rdp%3a%2f%2f$USERNAME%3a$ENCPASSWORD@localhost%3a${LOCALPORT}?property_Name=${SERVER}"

 The above command actually doesn't work. It starts Royal TSX and I can see the RDP url in Royal TSX, but it doesn't work because the query string is added to the RDP URL (I don't think that's supposed to happen, is it?)

If I manually remove the query string in Royal TSX (or if I remove it in my script), it works properly and it connects to my Windows machine.


I followed this manual when I created my bash script:

Is this not applicable to MacOS?

Should I use AppleScript?


Kind regards,

Hi,


the "property_Name=" syntax is not available on macOS at the moment.

I'm moving your thread to the "Ideas" forum.

Hello felix,


Thank you for your reply.

Does it mean that the query string parameters are not supported at all on macOS for now?

Because even without "property_Name", and just specifying action, or using, it fails.

Anyway, thank you for moving my threads to ideas, I think it'd be great to at least support the full URI scheme that is available for Windows on macOS. :)


Kind regards,


RS

Hi,


yes, the parameters supplied via querystring are not supported in Royal TSX (for macOS) at the moment.


cheers,

felix
