Make "This is a private computer" the default in RDWeb.

I’m setting up RDWeb in Windows 2008 R2 remote desktop services.  On the default web page where it gives the user a choice between “Public” or “Private” computer, is there a way to make the “This is a private computer” the default, or remove the choices and make it the default?

Hi, Actually, change visible="False" to style="display:none;" ... I haven't used INPUTS in ages.

Hi,
1. Open c:\windows\Web\RDWeb\Pages\en-us\Login.aspx in notepad
2. Search for "checked"
3.  Modify the radio defaults for rdoPlbc to be rdoPrvt.
Sample excerpt from Login.aspx
    const string L_PublicLabel_Text = "This is a public or shared computer";
    const string L_PrivateLabel_Text = "This is a private computer";
.......
       <label><input id="rdoPblc" type="radio" name="MachineType" value="public" class="rdo" onclick="onClickSecurity()" /></label>

                                <label><input id="rdoPrvt" type="radio" name="MachineType" value="private" class="rdo" onclick="onClickSecurity()"  checked /></label>
 
 Cheers, Hades666

Worked great.  Is there any way to remove the choices and just set it to private?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Remove the input and label from the page OR comment it out with <!-- and end it with --> -Hades666

Sorry, I was on the road.
Here you go. I wouldn't remove them, but make one the DEFAULT and then just hide them like such.
Login.aspx
<input id="rdoPblc" type="radio" name="MachineType" value="public" class="rdo" onclick="onClickSecurity()" visible="False" />

<label><input id="rdoPrvt" type="radio" name="MachineType" value="private" class="rdo" onclick="onClickSecurity()" checked visible="False" /></label>

I added the visible="False", but they are still displayed.

Yes,
That parameter is for a ASP RadioButton 2.0 object. This happens because it is an INPUT and not an asp:radiobutton object.
Syntax <INPUT> Attribute Specifications TYPE=[ text | password | checkbox | radio | submit | reset | file | hidden | image | button ] (type of input)
  NAME=CDATA (key in submitted form)
  VALUE=CDATA (value of input)
  CHECKED (check radio button or checkbox)
  SIZE=CDATA (suggested number of characters for text input)
  MAXLENGTH=Number (maximum number of characters for text input)
  SRC=URI (source for image)
  ALT=CDATA (alternate text for image input)
  USEMAP=URI (client-side image map)
  ISMAP (server-side image map)
  ALIGN=[ top | middle | bottom | left | right ] (alignment of image input)
  DISABLED (disable element)
  READONLY (prevent changes)
  ACCEPT=ContentTypes (media types for file upload)
  ACCESSKEY=Character (shortcut key)
  TABINDEX=Number (position in tabbing order)
  ONFOCUS=Script (element received focus)
  ONBLUR=Script (element lost focus)
  ONSELECT=Script (element text selected)
  ONCHANGE=Script (element value changed)

To get around this, you would need to use javascript to hide it.

This no longer seems to work in Server 2012. XSL/XML requires is be checked="checked" but that still does not make it the default.

Searched everywhere in all .xsl and .aspx files, but can't find what is making "Public" the default.

Any thoughts?
