Access Windows Server with a linux client


I have a peculiar doubt.
Say, i have a ERP software setup on a Windows 2000 Server.
Now, my server is windows....
can i use linux clients to access the windows server?
I mean can that ERP product runs on linux?

If there is a linux version for your ERP software, why not. You can also use rdesktop (remote desktop) to access your windows server inside your linux. It's like running windows inside linux.

You could try and use the client software on linux through wine and see if it will then access the program on the windoze server.

Yes you can. Simply configure your windows server to accept remote desktop. Then you need to install rdesktop on your linux machine. The command for rdesktop is :

rdesktop -f -g <resolution> -a <color-depth> <computername or ipaddress>

i.e.
rdesktop -f -a 1024x768 -a 16 10.0.0.1

Hope this helps.

This is the correct command:

rdesktop -f -g 1024x768 -a 16 10.0.0.1

Sorry, typo error.

Is your windows machine already configured for remote desktop sharing? In WinXP, I do these.

1. Open Control Panel->System properties.
2. On the Remote tab, put a check on the Remote Desktop option ("Allow users to connect remotely to this computer").
