GEN7: RDP bookmark auto login feature

I'm being told by support that the RDP bookmark feature to "Use SSL-VPN account credentials" to login to the RDP session is being removed. Having migrated from GEN6 (where it worked as expected) to GEN7 I logged a ticket because the user has to re-enter their credentials when opening the bookmark from the Virtual Office page.

According to support this is being removed as it is a security risk and the next release (7.0.2) will not include it.

Is this correct? It seems a bit backward to me. The Microsoft RDP (mstsc) program allows storing credentials so I'm not sure why Sonicwall can't use the logged in session credentials to pass to the RDP bookmark.

  • I totally agree! Many customers rely on this feature. It's also a bit cumbersome for the users to type in the credentials again!
