Hello Felix Wolfheimer

At the current moment RDP protocol is not supported by Torque. if you want to release it you need to do much work.
We are not planning do this job for future.
You can try to build and to run your application under Windows using X-Server http://x.cygwin.com/ as well as under Linux.
