We have a clientless SSL-VPN portal set up via a Cisco ASA Box.
I have a smart tunnel created for the local RDP client ( mstsc.exe ) which is verified working.
In order to let users easily launch a terminal session after logging in to the SSLVPN Portal I have a link on the user portal that points to an .rdp file served up from Sharepoint. When users click the link they open the .rdp file and it launches the local Windows RDP client with the terminal server IP and other settings pre-configured.
This technique works fine in Windows XP SP3 but in Windows 7 I keep getting an error saying that the server cannot be found on the network.
- If I save the RDP file to the desktop of the Windows 7 machine and run it from there it launches the terminal session just fine.
- If I manually start the terminal client and type in the same IP address that I have in the RDP file the client connects to the server no problem.
How can I get the RDP file to launch the client automatically in Windows 7 the same way it was working on Win XP SP3?
New Windows 7 Installations take days for Windows-Updates to show up and install. This can easily be fixed. I have finally decided to write an article because this seems to get asked several times a day lately.
