We have multiple servers with remote desktop access, and we’re using them on a daily basis.
The current solution is a sheet with the server IP, username, and password. As you can imagine, it makes it very difficult and inefficient to search the relevant server, insert its address and credentials, and log in.
In order to solve this problem, I’ve started to read and look for a solution.
The first and easy-to-implement solution I’ve found is to create an “RDP” (Remote Desktop Protocol) file, with the relevant credentials - and connect directly to the server without the need of adding credentials each time.
Still, from what I’ve seen - you can’t create a hyperlink to this file, either locally or on the web.
So, I’m looking for a creative way to add a column to my table with a direct link to each server. The ideal is that a user clicks on the link, and the session opens and logs in automatically, but we’ll be more than satisfied also with a simple link to open the login page and the users will add the credentials manually.
We’re trying to prevent from using a web interface such as chrome remote desktop and other tools, but we will use it if there’s no other solution.
Does anyone try something like this before?
Any lead, guidance, or suggestion will help here. Thanks in advance for your attention.
