Randomize RDP file name with RDP proxy

When you click on an RDP URL, an RDP file is downloaded. Upon clicking the RDP URL again a new RDP file with the same name is downloaded, resulting in a pop-up for the replacement of the new file with the existing file. To avoid this, administrator can opt for randomizing the rdp filename. The file name is now randomized by appending output of time () function in the format <rdpFileName>_<outputof time()>.rdp. By doing this, the appliance generates a unique RDP file name every time you download a file.
