Im trying to use RDP and save my credentials in a file so I dont have to entire it each time I connect.

I remember doing it before and it involved changing a group policy setting. What exactly do I need to change in Group Policy within Windows 7 in the host & client machines to accomplish this?

Answered link doesn't work anymore.

This link might help, instead.

Start local group policy editor, start – run – gpedit.msc Go to Local Computer Policy –> Computer Configuration –> Administrative Templates –> System –> Credentials Delegation Edit “Allow Delegating Saved Credentials with NTLM-only Server Authentication” Enable the policy, click Show and enter the value “TERMSRV/*” into the list.

enter image description here

Do the same thing for the following policies:

  • Allow Delegating Saved Credentials
  • Allow Delegating Default Credentials with NTLM-only Server Authentication
  • Allow Delegating Default Credentials
