Mapping ubuntu drive via rdesktop to win2k8 is giving me sleepless nights

Hi All, I have a remote win2k8 terminal server that will allow me to map XP client drives via RDP as usual. However, as soon as I map an Ubuntu 8.04 client drive the connection to the drive breaks and I need to kill the session and disconnect the mapping after logging in again. I can browse the ubuntu client from the session. My server 2003 machine allows mapping from both xp and ubuntu as well as copy paste, which 2008 doesn't seem to?
Here is the command I'm using via a launcher on the ubuntu desktop "rdesktop -g 800x600 -u kadmin -d ksm.local -r clipboard:CLIPBOARD -r disk:linux=/home/" Any ideas would be really welcome!

I got rid of that error

Seems like windows has different behavior when utilizing disk or floppy ressources. For getting your command to work try this:

rdesktop -g 800x600 -u kadmin -d ksm.local -r clipboard:CLIPBOARD -r floppy:linux=/home/

Have fun



rdp, server, ubuntu
