Hi,

 

I was looking through the My Documents section of my computer and i found this had been added on August 15, 2008.  The name of the file is in blue and this is the information on it:

Default.rdp

Remote Desktop Connection

0kb 

 

When i click properties i get the location, and it says the size on the disc is 4kb 

 

Is someone hacking my computer?  Thank you

Re: What is Default.rdp
When I open up my Default.rdp I see ... redirectsmartcards:i:1 ... so its enabled. For the sake of sounding dumb, does this refer to something like usb sticks? for the sake of redeeming myself, is this enabled by by default if I used RDP to a connect a Windows distribution or is this a snoopy IT tactic? here are some more settings if someone can help me ... keyboardhook:i:2 connection type:i:2 video playback mode:i:1 redirectprinters:i:1 redirectdirectx:i:1 autoreconnection enabled:i:1 ... Thanks, Justin

Re: What is Default.rdp

Default.rdp is a file that is created upon using the, "Remote Desktop Connection" application in Windows. You or somebody using your computer connected to a RDP using remote desktop connection.

Default.rdp is a safe file that stores default information. If you open up "Remote Desktop Connection", press "Options >>" and the user name field already has a value stored in it. That would be from your "Default.rdp" file filling it in for you by...default.

I hope this helped,

Re: What is Default.rdp

 Thank you all for your help.  Seems to be a false alarm,  but since the date in question was a date that I was out of town I was worried.  I looked and "allow remote users" was not checked.  After looking I did not find where there had been any.  I have not done the net stat or the notebook trick suggested, but will as soon as I am not so brain dead.  Thanks again!
