Paste username/password as keystrokes (when copy/paste is not available)

  • Create an Issue

I have been searching for a feature in RDM where you can send username and password to a remote host, by sending keystrokes instead of "paste". I have one host at a customer, where I can't copy/paste text. So having RDM send the keystrokes to the host would solve the problem. Is this a thing in RDM? I haven't been able to find out how to do it.

I believe the "Type Clipboard" option is what you would be looking for :

Can't you somehow combine it with a event like After connect event ? so you can retrieve creds from a credential entry and have the event type it

Hi Ben,

Depending on what type of session you are using (i presume), that is actually an option. Look at the settings for an RDP session. Haven't tried it yet:
