In the Screen Size drop-down list, select the default terminal services screen size to be used when users execute this bookmark.

Additionally, you might want to provide a path to where your application resides on your remote computer by typing the path in the Application Path field.
In the Colors drop-down list, select the default color depth for the terminal service screen when users execute this bookmark.

For RDP - ActiveX on Windows clients, optionally select Enable plugin DLLs and enter the name(s) of client DLLs that need to be accessed by the remote desktop or terminal service.

The administrator can configure custom Single Sign On (SSO) credentials for each user, group, or globally in RDP bookmarks. This feature is used to access resources that need a domain prefix for SSO authentication. Users can log in to SonicWALL SSL VPN as username, and click a customized bookmark to access a server with domain\username. Either straight textual parameters or variables can be used for login credentials.
