Which RDP client for support NLA
I am trying to find a Remote Desktop Client which supports NLA, the standard Terminal Server Client does not support this. I am encountering similar difficulties on CentOS, Scientific Linux and Mageia.
The FreeRDP package and libs can be installed from the EPEL repo and that I believe does support NLA. Problem is I understand that still requires a gui front-end to use it.
This is where I get stuck, the recommended gui front-end for FreeRDP is Remmina. However that doesn't seem to be available in any of the normal repos. Are there any other alternative packages to allow RDP with NLA access.
Freerdp does not require any gui. It is a direct descendent of rdesktop (that probably is used by that "Terminal Services Client").
It does work great with NLA.
Make sure you read up on the hows and whys on the site if you want to share folders/audio/printers with the server - this is a bit convoluted by using virtual channel plugins but it works (i even printed via RDP to the printer connected to my Debian box from a Win2008 server). It even works with RemoteApp (but there you have to do a bit of configuring on the Win2008 server).
For basic usage, no extra complications are necessary.
If you have issues connecting to NLA servers, check the ~/.freerdp/known_hosts file, in some cases (same ip/hostname, multiple rdp servers behind it) this is the cause of issues. Just delete it or edit it and delete the troublemaker lines.
This is freerdp on Debian (it is in the repos there as freerdp-x11):
Thanks gradinaruvasile. On Scientific Linux 6.3 that I am using this is known as xfreeRDP and I now have that working. Unfortunately there is no version of Remmina which works with EL 6.3 because Remmina doesn't seem to be compatible with the later versions of freerdp.
