basically, I would like to have links on my desktop for ten specific servers that will have the ip address added already and will connect by itself.

If you download the remote desktop client free from MS at http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/tools/rdclientdl.mspx 
or if you already have windows XP, you can just run remote Desktop connection.

Click options and fill all the sections as you see fit. Then simply save the RDP file on your desktop using the "save as ..." button in the General Tab.

To use Remote Desktop, you need the following:

• Windows XP Professional installed on your office computer, or whichever computer you plan to operate remotely.
 
None of the computers involved are using xp. this will not work.
If I could use and RDP file with MSTSC v 5.0... that should work for me but I can't find any references to v5 and RDPs

Remote desktop is Terminal Services. They just made a more friendly name and limited to the usability on the XP Terminal Server side.

You can use Remote Desktop Client (RDC)  with older terminal services no problem. It's just a newer fluffier version of MSTSC.

Case and point use remote desktop to connect to www.compucorp.com, a windows 2000 server

ok... I was on vacation last week and today I have playing with RD and it seems to work great...
but I do have one issue.  I would like to create a dynamic RDP file that will have the corrosponding password in the file.  each server will used a different password depending on the account used... basically I want the password to be saved or used with plain text instead of the encrypted hex... any ideas?
