Remote Desktop Connection

The standard Microsoft application “Remote Desktop Connection” allows you to remotely login to the Embedded Controller across the LAN from another computer. It only works if the accounts have passwords. Anyone who knows your current Administrator password can change the password. When you change your password you must enter the current password. Because Auto Login is enabled, you might not notice if someone changed the password.

If your Embedded Controller is running “Windows 10 Enterprise 2016 LTSB”, Remote Desktop Connection is enabled by default. Anyone with network access to your Embedded Controller can control your Embedded Controller using the user name of local\Administrator and the publicly known default password of: Keysight4u! For your environment, you must determine if this is a useful feature or a security problem. If it’s a security problem, then change the password or disable Remote Desktop Connection.
