Hello Experts
I am looking for a script to auto login through RDP to a specific computer that will automatically login to this server with the proper username & password.
I tried it using a batch file: "nstsc.exe /v:{computer name}" but since I cannot send keys (user & password) on a batch file I was wondering if I could perform this task using a different script..VBScript maybe....??
Can you help...??

Depending on your RDP version you can usually use a command like

C:\windows\System32\mstsc.exe /v:computername /admin

when the screen pops up you can check the box that says remember username and password.

Thanks but, don't want it to login as an administrator so I dont need the /admin part...second when I run this script it opens a new RDP session and it does not give me the option to save the password...

/admin is for the console in the new RDP.  I have it on a few machines and if you hit the options button at the bottom of the screen, it gives you a "Allow me to save credentials"  and it won't prompt you again for the username and password till you change it.

We use an ASP file to generate the old form of RDP file, you may be able to modify it to present the .RDP file for the user to open or even open automatically

<%      Response.Contenttype="application/x-rdp"
      Response.AddHeader "content-disposition","attachment;filename=Remote.rdp"
