Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

If I use a UNC share for a virtual directory, and use "Connect As" to save the username and password.

I'm presuming that these saved credentials are secure? Is that correct? Are the credentials saved encrypted?

-thanks for the help.
