KDE 3.2 and Windows Remote Desktop (RDP)


While scanning the changelog for KDE 3.2 this morning, I noticed something that caught my eye. KDE 3.2 is said to support Windows Remote Desktop protocol now.

Does anyone know what this support includes? Is it just that a system using KDE can connect to a Windows box using Remote desktop (a la integrated rdesktop), or can a Windows box now connect to a KDE system using the remote desktop tool?

If its the latter, thats pretty exciting to me for interoperability purposes and for the fact that I can ditch VNC.

... So why don't you just run krdc and try it instead of askin? The name of the program was right in the changelog

And krfb sets up the connection if your wondering...

KDE 3.2 was JUST released, and I haven't had time to install it yet. Could it be possible that I was asking this question to help me decide whether or not to try it out right away? I'd say so, but obviously you had a problem considering that so you responded in the way you did.

You also didn't answer my questions at all.

I've used krfb before, but that has not handled RDP in the past. Also, KDE 3.1's krfb/krdc lacks the RDP support and since I do not have 3.2 as its just been released, downloading it would not really help me.

If the RDP support handles Windows-to-Linux and Linux-to-Windows connections, then I will get it very soon.

RDP

Did you ever find out if KDE 3.2 Supports RDP?

It includes some form of RDP support, I am just unsure as to what was actually implemented.

rdesktop has allowed connections from a Linux box to a Windows desktop over RDP for sometime, I am just curious as to if KDE 3.2 supports a Linux desktop being shared with a Windows box over a Terminal Services/Remote desktop connection.

I am guessing KDE 3.2 has integrated rdesktop into some tool of its own, but I may be wrong in that assumption.

Is there a way to run krdc from gnome? I don't seem to be able to ... mainly because I am a n00b and I am sure I am doing something incorrectly.

I am running Slack 10 with Gnome 2.6 and KDE 3.2 and various other window managers. KDE freaks out my sound card for some reason but I like Gnome better anyways.

Any tips to get krdc running in Gnome are appreciated. (And yes I did Google for it but didn't find anything very useful yet.)

Sorrodos, could you tell me if you have already found a way to connect to your KDE, using a Windows machine??

The KDE comes with the VNC server, called: krfb. The client is krdc.

I want to connect to this standard VNC server, that comes in KDE, using the Windows XP VNC cliente (I think that you are trying to do the same thing). You can access it, in Windows by start -> programs -> accessories -> communication -> access to a remote desktop area (something like this... I'm from brazil, sorry any wrong word).

If it is possible to access kde from windows, it will be great, because I won't need to install anything on windows, and I won't need to install anything on linux too. This vnc server comes with every KDE, on linux.

I tryed to connect, but I didn't have any lucky so far. I marked the following options on kde control center -> desktop sharing:

1) allow connections withou an invitation
2) anounce service on network
3) allow connections without invitation to control the computer.

But, when I try to access it from windows, I get an error message.

Thank you for your attention.
