    Script to connect to terminal server?

    Hi,

    I'm after a script that will create a connection to a terminal server, something that I can run at logon for all our staff. Does anybody have such a thing or suggest a good source of scripts? I've had a look around but so far found nothing that does what I want.

    I would also point out that you can fine tune this as follows;

    - Run MSTSC and define all the settings you want to use (computername, display settings, local resources, programs, experience etc,)

    - Return to the General tab and click on Save. Choose a suitable location and name for the .RDP file that will be created.

    - Use a script to execute the following

    MSTSC (path to .RDP file)

    This will make the connection with all the settings that you have predefined.

    The .RDP file is just a plain text file with all the settings in. Information is on these pages

    Remote Desktop Protocol settings in Windows Server 2003 and in Windows XP

    http://louis.steelbytes.com/rdp_settings.html

    Note the 'SmartSizing' option that allows you to scale the remote desktop window. This is not available via the UI.

    Other options available by doing the usual MSTSC /?
