  [out]  LONG *pCipherStrength
);

Property value

The encryption strength.

Error codes

Return S_OK if successful.

Remarks

For Remote Desktop Web Connection, the cipher strength is always 128 because the Remote Desktop ActiveX control supports encryption up to and including 128 bits. The 128-bit control can still connect to 56 bit encryption Remote Desktop Session Host (RD Session Host) servers.
