Remote Desktop

When using RStudio Desktop Pro, you can launch and connect to sessions via a remote RStudio Workbench instance, allowing you to do your work on a more powerful computing system while providing the enhanced desktop look-and-feel.


RStudio Desktop Pro clients will be unable to connect to RStudio Workbench when it is configured to use Google Authentication due to restrictions from Google - see Google’s Notice for more information.


Connecting to RStudio Workbench requires the same major version of RStudio Desktop Pro. It may be possible to connect with mismatched versions of Workbench and Desktop Pro, but this may lead to unexpected behavior and is not officially supported.
