      Description

      The description of this issue was copied from GUAC-335, an issue in the JIRA instance used by the Guacamole project prior to its acceptance into the Apache Incubator.

      Comments, attachments, related issues, and history from prior to acceptance have not been copied and can be found instead at the original issue.

      Some parameters, such as the username/password for VNC or RDP, are better entered manually within the client when connecting rather than stored on the server in MySQL or user-mapping.xml.

      Storing secure data within parameters on the server side has security implications that don't fit well with all use cases.

      Further, some connections would benefit if their settings can be modified locally before connecting. A user could change the color depth or screen size of their RDP session, for example, for the sake of a slower connection.
