    connect to windows terminal server - auto saves authenticati


    Hi

    Im using optiplex fx160 with suse Enterprise 10 Desktop to connect to
    windows remote desktop with the terminal software.
    This is regarding a school, with many students.
    So I was wondering, when i save a connection, I don't have the options
    to not save username and passwords.

    Since some of the clients is going to be placed in some places where
    students can pass by all school day,
    we don't want it to be as easy as a students passing by and just
    doubleclick on connection and then their in.

    Is there any options or possibilities to choose NOT to save
    authentication,
    and just save the host ip?

    Is it aswell free to upgrade? or do you have to pay for upgrading?

    Just move this thread if i posted in wrong place..

    Regards

    Andr

    Are you using rdesktop? If so you can create a launcher with the
    following command: rdesktop -k youkeyboardlayout -T NameOfServer
    ipofserver.

    Re: connect to windows terminal server - auto saves authenticati


    It's a thin client with suse Enterprise 10 Desktop,and it seems like
    there
    is no a right click function on the Desktop neither in any other
    places...

    Is this a function for v.11 only?

    You can probably create a file named myshortcut.desktop in the
    /home/username/Desktop folder with the following content:

    > [Desktop Entry]
    > Version=1.0
    > Encoding=UTF-8
    > Name=No name
    > Type=Application
    > Exec=rdesktop -k fi -T ServerName IPofserver
    > TryExec=
    > Icon=/usr/share/pixmaps/network.png
    > X-GNOME-DocPath=
    > Terminal=false
    > Name[en_US]=MyShortcut
    > GenericName[en_US]=
    > Comment[en_US]=


    Then it should show up on the desktop?

    Thanks for reply.

    There is no nautilus on the thin client,
    so there is no possibility to browse to any folder either...
    Neither creating shortcuts, files or folders...

    It's a very stripped version with only a few applications...

    Do you have any other ideas?

    So can you add items to the gnome menu, if so then you could place the
    .desktop file in the folder where the menu shortcuts are?
