Store credential for RDP based on file name?

  • Create an Issue
  • Cancel

I have an interesting situation where we have a VM in Azure that doesn't have a fixed IP. Each day it starts and won't have the same IP as yesterday. I get the .RDP fle each morning with today's address in it. It does have the same credentials though. Is there a way to create an entry that reads an .rdp file each time it's launched, uses the host in it, that I can tie a credential to?

Hello,

Do you want to launch it in Embedded(tabbed) or External mode? Furthermore, are you the only one who uses this session?

Generally I launch in tabbed mode, but that's just because that's how it works now. Yes I'm the only one.

Hello,

There is a way to link a .RDP by doing an Import - Import Sessions - RDP configuration, after you specify your .RDP, you'll be able to use the Link option :
import
link

But after checking this option, we noticed that there is a bug with the Credentials where they are not sent, a ticket with the engineering department has been open for that issue.

I tried the linking just to see if it works, but I'm not sure it's working. Once I linked, I don't see an option to open a connection. Did I do something wrong?

Hello,

Would you be able to send a recording of our process to import the RDP file, I will try to recreate the issue.
I will send you a link via private message to send in the recording.

Quite weird that it is not creating a RDP session, we will investigate on that!
Where exactly did the .RDP file came from?

It's downloaded from Azure, when you click "Connect" on an Azure VM.

Hello,

Would you be able to send us a .rdp sample (you can change the information of the RDP) from your Azure? We will do some test. Simply use the same link that I sent you earlier.

Best Regards,

Hello,

The import seems to create an RDP session as expected but we might have found a work around. Instead of importing the session, could you try to create an RDP entry, set the option to RDP file link (See below) and then manually fetch the .RDP file? Let me know if that works smile

I've done this. I'll let you know if it works. However, I can't seem to change the display to "imbedded (tabbed)"

Only external is listed. I want to open it as a tab. Thanks

Hello,

The session will indeed only open in External mode since it is linked to an .RDP that opens up with MSTSC.

Interesting. Thanks. Is there a way around this? I do have .RDP mapped to devolutions.

I do not believe so, but I will have a look.
