Hi Giovanni,

thanks for the details.
I implemented something similar in the AddOn (but a bit more robust to avoid sending the credentials to the wrong window/process).

I have a preliminary version of the AddOn ready. If you would like to give it a try, send me a private message and I will provide it to you so that you can give me your feedbacks.

Best Regards

Hello,

The add-on for FastViewer is now publicly available and can be downloaded from our website:
http://remotedesktopmanager.com/Home/AddOn#SessionAddOn

Please give us some feedbacks!

Hi Mister Robitaille,

FastMaster add-on seems to be working as expected, but we noticed that one connection type is missing on RDM.

On RDM we can choose 5 Remote Access connection type:
Default (it's the same as Rdp); Rdp; Presentation; Conference; Support. (see image 1)
On FastMaster original software we can choose from 6 connection type:
Connect; Connect using RDP; Connect using RDP (without credentials); Support; Presentation; Conference. (see image 2)

We usualy use first option (Connect) wich connects directly without prompting for username and password, this option seems to be missing.

Best regards

Hi Giovanni,

We're using the "/reConnect" parameter to pass the connection type to FastMaster.
In the documentation, there are only 4 accepted values for this parameter: rdp, presentation, conference, support

When the "Default" value is selected in the Add-On, we just skip this /reConnect parameter and do not provide it to FastMaster.
When leaving the Add-On to "Default", are you sure it doesn't do the same thing as the "Connect" menu in FastViewer Remote Manager?

If you're aware of another parameter that we can pass to FastMaster, I will be happy to add it!

Best regards,

Hi Giovanni,

I did some tests and passing "fvw" to FastMaster seems to do the same as the "Connect" menu in Remote Manager.

Can you confirm? If it works, I will add this parameter to the AddOn.

Ex:
FastMaster.exe /reAutoconnect:{your guid} /reConnect:fvw

Hi Sebastien,

So you can add it.

Hi Sebastien,

the Add-On version 1.1.0 is working very good.

Just anothe question, is it possible to provide, storing them on RDM, username and password of the RDP connection on FastViewer?

I try to explain better, using FastViewer the session password, guid etc are stored. If I choose RDP conection rdp username and password are asked . Is it possible to store and provide them?

Best regards

Hi Giovanni,

I think this is a very good idea.
Unfortunately, I cannot think of a solution right now that will work all the time and won't put user credentials at risk.
I will keep thinking about it...

The best solution would be that FastViewer themselves add some parameters to their application so that our add-on could simply pass the credentials to it.
Maybe you could ask them? Sometimes when requests are coming from paying customers, things go faster.

In the mean time, as a work around you could try creating a macro (to which you can pass custom fields containing the username and password).
