how do get rdesktop to port/redirect the sound to my workstation?
Posted on 2007-11-15
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.
