URL format to connect directly to a Windows Desktop


This was a question that another user posted about this, but there were no answers listed. I want to construct a URL to allow a direct connection to a Windows 7 desktop without typing in the hostname, user, and password.

For example, lets say I want a direct RDP connection to a desktop with the IP of The username and password on that computer is User1 / Pass123. Lets assume that I have FreeRDP installed on a computer using the IP of running port number 8000. What URL would I use (or construct) to make this happen?

I tried this combination based on my provided example:

But that doesn't work. Any help would be great and for other folks which have asked similar questions?

Thank you!
