Remote Desktop version 6 for Linux (Microsoft RDP v6)


I'm trying to connect to a Win XP computer via Remote Desktop/Terminal Server. (Note: WinXP refers to Remote Desktop, or RDP; Ubuntu uses Terminal Server client for this function.)

The problem is that my XP computer requires the use of Microsoft's RDP version 6 because it uses a Terminal Server Gateway. The TS client in Ubuntu is compatible with version 5, not version 6.

Is there a MS RDP version 6 compatible program/client for Linux?

I've used krdp before, and it worked with NT servers...haven't tried it on XP, though...

krdP or krdC?

I went looking for krdp but couldn't find it anywhere. I found krdc instead. Perhaps that's what you meant.

Unfortunately, krdc doesn't appear to solve the terminal server gateway problem.

Hmm...krdp used to be available. Sorry, been a while since I was cursed with Windows.

However, rdesktop is still around, and OpenSuSE has built in support for RDP, from what I remember. Try doing this:
Code:
rdp:/host.name.here
in Konqueror, and see if that helps....

Built-in support compatible with MS RDP v. 5, yes.

Built-in support compatible with MS RDP v. 6, no.

It's the terminal server gateway aspect of v. 6 that I need.

Sorry...those are the only ideas I had. Haven't had to use such things in quite a while, thankfully. I tried...but thanks for posting back, so others can at least know what's up.

Out on a business trip and I haven't had a chance to do the WINE/RDP installation. Very interesting idea, though.

kde has desktop sharing built in it's in the system menu and there is tightVNC for the windoze side
the big bug I have found with tightVNC is that it dose not work with local host (127.0.0.1) but needs the real ip instead that bug may be fixed now
http://www.tightvnc.com/


ultraVNC may be what your looking for
http://www.uvnc.com/index.html

when running on an ad hock network side by side it dose get confusing because it's easy to lose track of just witch computer what is running on

RDP v6

Yes, kde has something MS RDP compatible built-in, but it's for version 5 of RDP, NOT version 6. (For reference, see my post just above dated 8/16.)


MS RDP v6 supports a terminal server gateway. VNC does not solve that problem. This is why I need MS RDP v 6. (For reference, see at least 2 posts above, dated 8/14 and 8/15.)

RDP is will forward sound too, and I will admit I like RDP better than VNC, I use both.

Did you get the Wine solution to work?

The other alternative I could think of is trying the SVN development version. New to the forums, so I can't post a URL yet, but you can find the link to the development version off the main rdesktop page or just search on SourceForge for the rdesktop project.

The stable 1.6 version is almost a year and a half old; the SVN version has updates as recent as two weeks ago. It might have rolled in RDP6 support in that time.

Myself, I'm going to need RDP7/CredSSP support, so I'm guessing Wine's going to be the only solution for that.

in the past i have used rdesktop to connect to win2k, win2k3, and winXP so it should work. it has been more then a few years since i have had to do that though as now my main workstation is a mac and it has a native RDP client from MS to connect to MS OSs.

Original poster update

No, Wine did not work for me. I still think that should be possible, but my employer moved me out of the country unexpectedly for a few months and I haven't had a chance to try further experiments. I'm betting Wine is the way to go for now.

Slinkygn, thank you for your suggestion. I'll check it out when I can. Hopefully it will provide an alternative to Wine and give the capabilities I need for this to work.

And now a point of irritation on my part. Do some of you actually read the posted problem? I've lost track of how many times I've had to explain that rdesktop or VNC are not viable solutions. Why? Because they don't incorporate the Terminal Server Gateway that Microsoft RDP version 6 has. I'm glad that rdesktop works with W2K and that VNC can forward sound. However, none of that has anything to do with accessing an XP desktop protected by a Terminal Server Gateway.

If anyone has some information on the original question, I'd truly be happy to hear it. Let me quote the very first post:

"Is there a MS RDP version 6 compatible program/client for Linux?"

Thanks for reading.
