Hi,
I want to setup a Remote Desktop Connection from my XP laptop over the internet to a Windows 2000 Server running Terminal Services. There is a concern that when connecting using RDC the password is sent in plain text. Can someone confirm this for me, or point me to where I can find out for sure.
If this is the case, what can be done to increase the security of the password info being sent.
Thanks,
Bill
