Windows 7: Question about Remote Connection and auto login

Question about Remote Connection and auto login

I'm using Remote Connection to connect to the PC that I've set auto login to. The user it auto logs in is password protected.
Will this still ask for a password when I try to remote connect, even after setting it to auto login?

Thanks

It shouldn't ask you for username and password if you add those items into the options section of the remote connection area.

If you're Using RDP. When you click on it, what you can do is click on options. Type in the user name and password. Save the RDP file somewhere.

Whenever you want to connect to that machine, open the saved RDP file. No prompts for you.

Hope this helps.

Yeah I know that can be done I was asking about security, as in if this will enable someone to RDP on my machine without having to provide a username/pass which would make it wide open to anyone really.
