Terminal Server RDP Client Improvements

by Jason Conger [Published on 28 March 2007 / Last Updated on 28 March 2007]


The Terminal Services team posted an article about feedback on the RDP 6.0 Terminal Server client and planned improvements for the next release. Some of issues addressed in the next RDP Client are as follows:

When using Remote Desktop Client 6.0 to connect to a computer running Windows 2003 Windows 2000, some users are forced to enter credentials (user name and password) twice in a row - once at the TS client, and again at TS server.
Saved credentials (user name, password) do not work. I don't know how to edit or delete my saved credentials.
RDP 6.0 client provides no easy way to save credentials for the target server similar to what we had in RDP 5.0 client.
Credentials entered in TS client get rejected when connecting to Windows Server 2003.
When connecting to Windows Server 2003 or Windows Server 2000 using RDP 6.0, I am seeing a new credential UI prompt which I don't like.
The pre-populated user name in the credentials dialog does not match the user name that is in the RDP file.
How to suppress the 'Remote Desktop cannot verify the identity of the computer you want to connect to..." security warning message?

I believe these are some great improvements to the RDP 6.0 client and look forward to the next release.
