Bypass Vasco Digipass when connecting with RDP

How can I bypass Vasco Digipass log in when connecting with RDP?
We have many Windows 7 blades/workstations that are accessed for admin activities through RDP. When there is a need to log in, we must provide credentials for RDP, then choose "Other User" and provide log in credentials again. This is not a big deal when there is a one-off need, but extremely time consuming when multiple systems must be logged in to. I am aware that there are many ways to accomplish our admin duties through PowerShell, and we do. Systems can only be accessed by RDP through admin accounts, so there is no real security worry. Any direction is appreciated.

I dont know the digipass product but you could give Microsoft RD Manager a try, as you can provide the credentials.

It is also a neat way to see and move between all of your connections

Not sure what this digipass is, but normal Windows credentials are stored using cmdkey in the local key store. E.g.

cmdkey /generic:TERMSRV/servername /user:yourDomainUser

Open in new window

Then can RDP use this credentials without additional manual login step.

But: The digipass tool is normally there for some reason. So just calculate the amount of time lost due the double login and talk with your manager about a different solution.
