Version: (using KDE KDE 3.3.1)
Installed from: RedHat RPMs
Krdc doesn't appear to have any integration with kwallet.
As a sysadmin, I have at least a dozen remote VNC servers that I need to be able to log in to. Regularly I have to open my password spreadsheet to look them up...
Integration with kwallet would be very useful, time-saving, and more secure.

Hey Mr. maintainer, I note that this RFE is now the most of all open tickets for krdc...
Can you give us any encouragement about whether it's a planned feature or not?
I don't have any feature plans right now, and I am not going to maintain krdc after KDE's 3.x cycle.
Patches are always welcome, of course :)
I think I can get this working. Stay tuned for updates. :)
SVN commit 431349 by jlee:
KRDC now has KWallet support. Both VNC and RDP are supported, although
RDP is a little rudimentary since it's just a frontend. KWallet usage
can be toggled per host. Password files and URL passwords are still
supported, and serve as alternatives to KWallet. RDP now makes use of
the standard password dialog if using KWallet.

Thank you very much, Jaison!
P.S. I wonder if you're interested into getting some kind of kwallet support for SSH somehow? As a sysadmin, the lack of kwallet support for these two (SSH and krdc) has been the major drain on my memory... I don't know what your motivation for kwallet support in krdc was.
My motivation was the same as yours; It will be a tremendous help to have. :)
I'll take a look at those other items and see what I think about them.
Why not just use a keypair for ssh? This is a lot cleaner IMO.
BTW, thanks Jaison! Great work! =)
Keypairs are distributed - they have to be installed on the server. We don't want this. KWallet is centralised.
