It's easy to access window destop from linux using the command rdesktop command. The windows machine may be in our LAN or machine connected in internet. If the linux didn't have rdesktop installed , you can download rdesktop and install it. Example for rdesktop:
Currently I have an hp laserjet p3015 printer installed in ubuntu 12.04 and it;s working just fine, I can print whatever I need to and I have to admit the installation of the printer in ubuntu was easier than it was in windows. Anyway that aside I am trying to remote desktop into a windows machine.
I'm looking at setting up a thin client terminal that connects to my ltsp server. Once into an ubuntu desktop I'll need rdesktop to connect to my Windows VM. Connected to the thin client will be a keyboard, mouse, usb hand scanner and usb weight balance.
Will I be able to pass through these usb devices through rdesktop to my windows VM?
I have a production Windows 2008 R2 server, and my workstation is Gentoo linux (kernel 3.12.13). I used to connect to server with rdesktop.
Now I want to restrict the windows firewall rule for rdp (built-in rule) to allow connections from certain IPs only.
