Seamless Terminal Server (Windows & Linux users)

Heres an early Christmas gift to fellow niners with Windows and Linux boxes, who are looking for an easy way to access all their Windows applications and remote files when Wine-type solutions fall flat. I've packaged together a set of software components. It provides a seamless terminal solution for Fedora Linux users with capable Windows machines. I've made RPMs for a patched CVS-built rdesktop, included Microsoft's Elevate Power Toy for Vista, Fontis IT's enhanced SeamlessRDP server, and a small tray application and five page Readme wrote by me. Be sure to check the Readme file.

System Requirements:

  • A computer with a version of Windows that encompasses the server component of Terminal Services--Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows XP Professional, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista Business, Ultimate, or Enterprise. Note: Windows Server 2008 terminal servers are not yet supported.
  • At least one computer with Fedora Linux installed. Although this software is capable of working on other distributions or Unix-like operating systems with a simple re-compile procedure, this particular package is designed to work with 32-bit versions of Fedora and Windows. Re-compiling the SRPM and SeamlessRDP components are necessary for 64-bit machines with 64-bit operating systems.
  • Any sort of network or Internet connection for both the server and client. A simple 56K modem connection would be sufficient. That said, dial-up modem support under Linux is a joke at best; therefore, for most users the only options are wired Ethernet or wireless connectivity. The Terminal Server system may be accessed from a local or wide area network or via the Internet.
