RE: [K12OSN] K12LTSP - How easy was that!



Try:

rdesktop remote.server.fqdn -g 1024x768 -a 16 -r sound:remote

Where:
 -g defines the screen geometry - this can also be given as a percentage
(-g 50%)
 -a defines colour depth (so 16 = 16bit; 24 = 24bit, etc...)
 -r sound :remote redirects the audio to the local client

If I recall you can also specify the user: -u username

It's been a while since I've played with it so please forgive me if I've
made a mistake!

I can help with that one

rdesktop is an RDP client which run on Linux

rdesktop will allow you to connect to a Windows XP desktop or Win2K3
terminal server in a similar fashion to VNC

It will allow you to use a windows desktop on your linux terminal

It's not the ideal solution but it can help if you need occasional
access to legacy apps. (We have MS Access databases)

see

http://www.rdesktop.org

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rdesktop

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vnc


Reading the docs it is in K12LTP 4.4.1 but I can't fathom out how to
start it!
