    Remote Desktops in the server 2003 admin tool pack lets you save passwords and connections.
    Visionapp Remote Desktop lets you do the same.

    Yes !
    Start Remote Desktop
    Select Options
    Specify the details of the computer that you want to connect to, local resouces, display etc
    Select Save As and save the RDP shortcut ie on the desktop
    launcd RDP from the shortcut, when you connect the first time enter a username/password and select "remember my credentials"

    from then on, clicking the RDP shortcut will connect with no prompt for credentails - this can be dangerous - use wisely.

    I would recommend using Royal TS which would let you create groups and dump the computer in the group.SAy You can put all the DC in one group and all the member servers in a another group and lets you sort  the servers.This is not possible with the windows Remote desktop.You can save the passwords and its free.
     Bit it is  not recommended to save the passwords.
