I believe to copy a file from the Windows PC to your linux machine, you'll have to use something other than rdesktop. You basically have to make a separate connection to do it or put the file on a common server that you can access.

For example, I can rdesktop from my laptop to my work desktop, then email the file to myself. Then when I check my mail on the laptop, I will get the file.

Other methods are to setup an ftp server on one of the machines or to use scp to copy files over ssh.

With rdesktop, you can also choose to mount any directory in your filesystem as a shared drive in the remote Windows session. Look in the "-r disk:" option in the rdesktop man page.

I knew that it's possible to use other way to share file between Linux and Windows. just i like to check that rdesktop can or can not do this like Remote Desktop of Microsoft.

Thank you.
