rdesktop remote desktop xp connection

This is perhaps the coolest thing that has happened for ages.

I've just discovered version 1.4 of rdesktop and they have perfected file transfer between linux and XP via M$ remote desktop.

using a script like ths,
/usr/local/bin/rdesktop -a 16 -g 1024x800  -r disk:linux=/home/USER/rdesktop_shares -u XP_USER_NAME <XP.BOX.IP.ADDY> 
exit 0
saved as 'rdesktop' makes connected to XP boxes and transferring files as easy as cd'ing to the script directory and then
sh rdesktop
The BEST bit though is that on XP, in MY COMPUTER will be a shared drive called 'linux' that contains whatever you put in /home/USER/rdesktop_shares. Just copy n paste to transfer stuff.

man rdesktop
for lots of other options

Woooooooohooooooo...another reason to have XP ticked off the list....just dvd_shrink ANd decrypt to go :-)

get it from here ----------><--------------
