    Remote Desktop w/ no password?

    Hey everyone - I got a quick question. I am planning on getting rid of my keyboard and using a hacked version to supply some buttons on my dash 9play/pause/etc).

    But I have a problem. I remote desktop into my machine alot, whenever I have my laptop (GF usually uses it) and when I disconnect I have to log back in the carputer again. However, I won't have a keyboard to type my password back in. What can I do? Is there some way to disable this?

    When first you load remote desktop, if you click the "Options >>" button, you will see a space to enter the username and password, along with a "Save Password" checkbox.

    After doing this it should log you in automatically

    I use realVNC for my remote desktop capablities. It doesn't rely on Windows Remote Desktop. Everything that I see on my local screen is the same thing that is shown on the remote screen.

    Ive always had trouble with VNC on my home network - so when I installed XP pro on my carputer I snapped to remote desktop. I like the ability to impor tthe serial ports/hard drives.

    But i think what he is referring to is what happens when you log out of remote desktop. I always reboot my home machine after I remote desktop into it, but that my not be an ideal solution for this type of situation.

    That's why I like realVNC. You don't have to reboot or anything. In fact, right now, I am using realVNC to connect me to my computer in Texas from Iraq. (My internet connection here isn't the greatest and there's stuff that I can't do from here such as download music, video, and games due to bandwidth.)

    My only dislike with this software is the inability to copy files between the two computers. On a local network, however, that is not a big problem because stuff can be shared across your network. I don't have that luxury when accessing my network from outside. For outside networking, I'll probably resort to setting up an FTP server. Interestingly, the clipboard between the two computers is shared (copy text on one and paste on the other).

    Plus, I got realVNC for "free" so I can't really complain too much.
