I need to create a rdp shortcut for an application.
When the package launches, the rdp session should launch and the client should not need to enter the userid and password info. It should be automatically included in the package.

Any thoughts on how to do this? Need help in proceeding towards this package?

Also, can similar thing be done for an ica icon that needs to have saved username and password?

Thanks in advance

Don't know, although I can tell you how not to have users able to save them from a helpdesk rollout we struggled with. Maybe it will point you in the right direction, or at least aid your googling...

Edit the RDPCLIENTLINK.rdp file & add or change the following three lines:

authentication level:i:0
enablecredsspsupport:i:0
prompt for credentials:i:0

As I understand from your requirement that, you will have a remote desktop connection with statis userid and password. in such case you can create a RDP file and add it to your package and create a shortcut for it as per requirement.

Its all in the pn.ini file. So create the ICA connections and copy the pn.ini file and add to your package. It uses the pn.ini file in the current user profile.

We have implemented something similar to this. We have distributed a link to an IIS page that relies on msrdp.ocx ActiveX from MS to force user name and password to log on to a pre-defined server and launch specific app. Caveats: it's using pre-defined user accounts and passwords (no pass-through authentication), and it won't work on newest RDP client without a couple of registry hacks.

If you'd like to find out more, http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa380809(VS.85).aspx should be your starting point...
