Editing an RDP Profile
Configuring a profile properly will allow you to take advantage of this feature and create the access schema that suits the company's needs best.
Remember that each profile defines a single computer's desktop or application access, except for the "[any computer]" profile that gives access to all computers.
- Go to Thinfinity® Remote Desktop Manager's "Access Profile" tab. If it is not there, read the topic Access Profiles first
- Press "Edit" to configure the profile and the following window will be presented:
- First of all, type in a descriptive name for the profile in the "Name" field
- Specify the computer this profile will connect to. Enter the internal IP or computer name on the field Computer
- Set the credentials to log into the remote machine:
Use the authenticated credentials
Sets a Single sign-on schema. The application credentials will be used to log in automatically on the remote desktop.
Ask for new credentials
Prompt the user for new credentials to access the remote desktop.
Use these credentials
If the credentials informed here are correct, this option will connect the user automatically to the remote desktop on selecting the profile, or after authenticating on Thinfinity® Remote Desktop, if this is the only profile the user has.
- Go to the permissions tab and set up the permission preferences as follow:
Allow anonymous access
Use this option, if you want this profile to be available for everyone. This means that everybody accessing Thinfinity® Remote Desktop will see this profile. Checking this option will disable the user.
Group or users access
To use specific users for this profile, uncheck "Allow anonymous access", press "Add" and choose the users and groups from the local domain.
This means that only users that authenticate with their correct Windows username and password will be able to use this profile. (*)
(*) Thinfinity® Remote Desktop supports a user changing the password at his next logon within the Thinfinity® Remote Desktop web interface. Make sure to uncheck the 'Use standard browser authentication dialog' to enable this option.
- You may want to configure other settings for the RDP connection. If so, check out the available options on Display, Program, Experience, Advanced and Printer
- When you are done with the previous steps, press OK
