password in .rdp file RRS feed

  • Question


    Hey guys,


    I'm trying to have a autologon to a remote machine with Remote Desktop on Windows CE 5.00. I read on this link: that Windows CE can read the password from the .rdp file but does not have the ACLs to securely write passwords. So I was wondering how I can encrypt my password so the Remote Desktop won't ask me for my password when I try to connect to the remote machine.


    I also read on this link, that "By making the appropriate changes in %_WINCEROOT%\Public\Rdp\Oak\Uit\cetsc, an OS developer can change this default behavior so that the password is saved to the device" I'm wondering what sort of changes are we talking about here, I have no Idea what I should make...


    Any help is greatly appreciated.


    Thanks in advance.

  • Hey Keith,


    Did you find a forum where I  can get an answer for my question? I couldn't find any answers from my search, so I was hoping someone from Microsoft could help me get a streight answer for my problem.


    Thanks in advance.
