What is Default.rdp

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

It's the Remote Desktop Protocol.  You can read more up on this at microsoft's site HERE...

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!

 

 

Normal people worry me

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
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
