    Is there a complete description of each available "option" in the shortcut command line and .2xa files compiled by the program?

    To run parameters on the command line, these parameters are available



    "C:\Program Files\2X\ApplicationServer Client\tsclient.exe" s!='' t!='3389' u!='test1' a!='Notepad' q!='password' d!='domain'

    Is there a way to specify the user name / password in the .2xa file itself. We have an application for the 2X server whereby we dont want the user to know their password.

    Read the section in the 2x App Server manual about customizing the .msi for zero touch install. There you can store the user/pass as well as the server, secondary server, etc so they are all setup after the install.

    Well that wasn't what I asked. Can I put those items into the .2xa file? My end users are my clients and I cannot be bothered to create an MSI for 300+ users whereby the passwords will change all the time. I want to use the web publishing piece to allow users to connect to our applications - but I need to specificy the credentials because I dont want them to know their account info. I can do this with the classic RDP client - can I do it with yours?

    I would love an answer to this question. This is a situation that I am currently looking at. This will probably be the deciding factor for my company on whether we use your or a competitor's product.

    Something like this:

    <APP xmlns:dt="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:datatypes">
    		<PORT dt:dt="ui4">80</PORT>
    		<PROXY dt:dt="ui4">1</PROXY>
    		<STARTMODE dt:dt="ui4">1</STARTMODE>
    Some assistance please. Thanks.

    Do you have an estimate as to when this will be released?

    The next client release should be out (as a beta) by the end of next week.

    Check out the new 4.2 beta available here:

    In this version you can find a 2XAGenerator command line application (2XAGen.exe).
    This creates .2XA files with the parameters that it is given.

    It also can encode the password in plain text and in jumbled format.

    You should give it a try.
