Using bat file to automatically log into 2003 server using RDP

Does anyone know if it possible to put username and password into the bat file?

At this point there is not a way to use RDP with a batch file to automatically load username and password
Michael KnightCommented:
you could certainly save the user credentials in the rdp 'shortcut' and just call it from a batch file.

Create a rdp file, save it as foo.rdp

make a batch file with the following in it:


save it as run_foo.bat

I can't believe I didn't think of saving the credentials in the rdp file. I knew about that, but I was so focused on using a bat file that I forgot about it.
