How to socksify rdesktop

view story

http://askubuntu.com – Is there a way to socksify rdesktop ? I get an error message "Unable to connect". Here is what I do. Create a proxy - ssh -D 8081 -g [email protected] Set server as and server_port as 8081 in /etc/tsocks.conf tsocks rdesktop ip.address.server I know that I could do port forwarding and get it working, but that would need another ssh session. I wanted to use the same ssh session for vnc and rdesktop. tsocks works well for vnc but not for rdesktop. (HowTos)
