Remote Desktop Client comes already installed in Ubuntu 11.10 (named as vinagre). It's a nice and one stop application for accessing remote machines using SSH, VNC, RDP (typically to windows machines).

However, I am not able to see any option for saving the names for the connections. Everytime, I have to provide the machine name, username, password etc. details ? Is there any add-on to enable saving the details of a connection ?

For now, I have installed "remmina" (sudo apt-get install remmina) client, which has all these facilities. However, I am wondering why such trivial facility is not there in vinagre Remote Desktop ?
