Remote Desktop Connection

I am using terminal services on remote computers.  I dont want users to have the hassle of keying in the IP address into Remote Desktop Connection and having to hit connect.

So, I put the remote desktop connection in the All Users>Startup file so that it will automatically pop up.
But, how do i set it up so when the remote desktop connection opens, that it will also AutoConnect to the remote server without them having to click on connect.  Does that make sense.  I want the users to just be able to log in the local client pc, and when they do, it will automatically run remote desktop connection and log on to the server, showing them the login screen for them to authenticate into.
any suggestions or help.  Do I have to run a script, and if so.......can someone show me a script that will work and where to play it.

thanks,

The file will have the extension .RDP.

To automatically connect, create a shortcut with this command:
"MSTSC PATH\FILENAME.RDP"
example, "MSTSC C:\Connect_Settings.RDP"
This automatically starts the connection.

BTW, I don't think it's possible to bypass the Login screen by any means.

Yea, the logon screen is mandatory.  

Curious, are you using the Terminal Server in Application Mode?  Thin Clients (dumb terminals) may be the way to go in your case.
