in tsclient 2.0.1, when creating RDP connections, i'm forced to enter login credentials (which are then stored plain text on the disc!!! how secure...). This causes problems, since for example, the VirtualBox VRDP servers don't even require authentication, so i cannot connect to those. also i have plenty of servers which i want to connect to, but always using different users (as i'm administering many of them), which too is not possible, as entering credentials bypasses the remote login screen. i could enter an invalid user, but that will force me to do another few extra clicks, because the remote will tell me that credentials are invalid. also this doesn't solve the problem with the authentication-less VRDP servers (virtualbox, kvm, ...).

    don't require all fields

    the attached patch simply comments out the checks for emptyness on those fields, and everything works like a charm. this should help with the open security enhancement requests about plain text passwords too.
