boot up direct into an RDP Session

Post by luke008 » Fri Aug 10, 2018 6:07 pm

can one start directly into an RDP session? so that you have to enter the username and the password only at the already open session? (Windows)

Disable NLA on the server to see username prompt in Windows interface: https://wtware.com/win/nla.html

What exactly happens when you disable NLA on the server? Is it safe to do?

With NLA enabled, Windows server firstly asks login an password in raw binary protocol. Client should draw interface for login and password inputs. Server starts RDP and sends any graphic to client only if password is OK.

With NLA disabled, Windows server sends RDP graphic from the very beginning.

For server opened to Internet, I prefer NLA.

For server with local network access only, I think disable NLA is safe.
