  1. Sounds great! I hope this means my VPN clients won't have to go through the "reconnect attempt 1 of 20" if their RDP session window is minimized for two minutes. ;) I mean it only takes 2 seconds to reestablish their connection (they don't have to renter any credentials), but they complain about it. A lot.
