how do get rdesktop to port/redirect the sound to my workstation?

I have terminal server 2003 as our server. The workstations are all thin-clients running Damn Small Linux. Users remote into the server using rdesktop.

I have modified the DSL startup script to launch full screen rdesktop on startup using the following:

rdesktop -0 -f -a 24 -r sound:remote 192.168.0.100

It opens to the 2003 server login screen fine. However, when I attempt to open a media file, a warning pops up saying that the sound device cannot be found. I do have a couple of xp workstations that redirect the sound fine, but none of my rdesktop stations do.

Hi,

First of all what version of rdesktop do you use? If it is an old version that  does mnot support ALSA not then you need to setup ancient OSS driver for your DSL. Another way is to use a never rdesktop and install ALSA to your DSL.

Pick whatever best for you :)

Yes... The sound works fine locally from DSL... Just not from remote with rdesktop.

I am using the latest DSL 4.0 with whatever version of rdesktop is packaged with it.
