You configure the RDP Shell to specify user name and password; however, the session creates but does not login the user.


The credential provider (CredSSP) is not enabled by default under XP SP3. You will need to enable the CredSSP provider because stored credentials will work.


Upgrade to XP SP3 and follow instructions in Microsoft KB951608. A Microsoft FixIt tool has also been created and can be directly downloaded at:

Turn on CredSSP (Microsoft FixIt #50588).
