How to keep Remote Desktop Connection alive

On Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server2008, how to setup that Remote Desktop Connection never expire for one user?

If I close Remote Desktop Connection and then try to connect again, I got again user and password prompt.

I tried to install RDCMan.msi but no success.

Is there any simple way to setup that?

You just don't want to type your credentials? You can install visionapp to manage your RDP's and set the username and password  for your connections.

You can save the RDC configuration in a RDP file and chose to save the credentials as well too. There is to way of connecting to RDC server without specifying username/password.

IT depends on which OS version you are connecting from, for windows 7 it will automatically offer you to save the credentials.

in windows XP, you need to open options and check "allow me to save password" check box.
If your RDP Server is on an Active Directory network, modify a group policy for just that user and set it to never log out or expire.
It works well.
