Jason Haar,

Jon Bendtsen,

Much appreciate your answers.
But i think that i didn't express the problems properly.
The server is running on Linux and the client running on Windows and use the password authenticate.
Instead of typing the password every time on Windows Client when connect to the server,
is it possible to save the pw into some file or registery.
So when start the client on Win can connect to the server *automatically* ?

Thx for your help.
