Windows 7: Remote Desktop Connection

14 Aug 2013   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1
Remote Desktop Connection

I received a request to view a file via RDC from our tech rep people.
I do not understand how one can create a RDC-connection zip file and then send it by email.
What I received was ' XXX-Demo ' (compressed zip).
When I unzip the file I have a RDC icon, named ' XXX-Demo'.
It is type=remote desktop connection.
I then click on the icon and the RDC screen appears. I see remote computer (XXX-Demo) and I see the the gateway as 'sentry'.
I then connect.
This is all new. How is this done? creating a RDC zip that holds the RDC icon, the link, and then to send this package by email?
Thanks for any insight into this.

Parvardiga, What it looks like is that they have a Secure Server Link setup on the Remote Desktop Program,, they filled it out and then zipped it up for you to use. I have several RDP sessions with different SSL setup's for secure remote desktop connections to Terminal Servers at different client sites.

When it shows up. click on options and then go thru the different tabs and you will see what the last tab and look
at the advanced settings. that should tell you what the gateway settings are. Normally you see the settings at this point.
