Entry Types Events Settings


Remote Desktop Manager gives you the flexibility to automatically run operations before or after establishing a connection.

These operations are defined via the Events section of a session's properties. Define a script or a command line which executes at the appropriate time with the provided parameters, such as the session ID or username. For example, events can be used to execute an external batch file or application that prompts the user for more information, or to update a log on a remote server.

This feature simply uses a basic mechanism of sending keystrokes provided by the .NET framework, emulating someone using the keyboard. It sends the keystrokes to the operating system itself, and they are handled by WHATEVER application has the focus at that time. If the focus is switched to another window, the credentials will most likely be revealed by being typed in a text area.

Be advised that using this feature in an environment where passwords must be hidden from the user is highly discouraged.
