Remote Desktop Connection Manager 2.2 Clear Text Gateway Passwords?

So if you are like me and want to save your RDCM rdg file in a central location you will have to store your passwords in clear text. I do this so I can share the RDG file across multiple machines. By default, gateway passwords are encrypted in your RDG file preventing you from opening it on another machine. However if you edit the RDG file in a text editor you can make some simple changes to disable the encryption.

Find the line <password storeAsClearText="False"> and switch it to <password storeAsClearText="False">. Replace the cryptic characters between the <password> tags with your password, save the file and you should be good to go.



Additionally, you'll also have to store your login credential passwords in clear text. There is a check box builtin to RDCM that allows this.

You need to take special care to make sure your rdg file is in a secure location as your passwords to your rdp clients will be visible in plain text.

  8. The functions of this direction allow receiving an open access to the files. We can also partially modify some encryption to avoid the unnecessary actions.
