pass connection parameters in the url

I saw your description of url schemes at http://www.ericom.com/accesstogoonlinehelp.asp#URLSchemes.

IMHO creating and having to download a .rdp file is a security risk and an unnecessary overhead. Is it not possible to just pass the connection parameters directly in the url?

Something like
    ericom://hostname:3389/?protocol=rdp&username=user&password=pass

Additional parameters from the .rdp file could also be passed in the url.

 
We have a web page with all the hosts our administrators need to connect to. When a password is changed, this must be done only once and the others need not be informed about it. The administrators of course need to authenticate to access this web page. So you cannot access the passwords without authentication. But
with your solution it seems like the .rdp file is downloaded by AccessToGo. Thus it has to be openly accessible. This is not acceptable.

If you implement that, then AccessToGo would be a good option for us because it has apps on both iOS and Android and all our administrators could use it on their own devices in their standby duty.
