    Terminal Services


    At work I have a XP pro workstation. I don't use it for much it is a dell and it is slow, but I need it for if I have to terminal service into the Small Business Server. They allow me to use my slackware laptop as a workstation too. I could give up my windows box if I could do Terminal Sevices on my laptop. Is there such a program or is there something I can configure to do this?

    Hi Mike,

    Do you mean a remote desktop for connecting to NT servers ?
    take a peek at http://www.rdesktop.org/

    Or Terminal server as I know it (connecting multiple dumb clients to a server www.k12ltsp.org/

    Hope it's of help.

    Tony.

    KDE

    KDE has its own remote desktop utility that also supports VNC and special key inputs. That expands the functionality of rdesktop.org.

    Its worth looking at

    Some people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.
