Disk Sharing To Windows With Linux rdesktop
I regularly use rdesktop to login to Windows computers over the network from Linux. Doing this, I regularly need to share files. For most Windows versions, this works fine the normal way by just specifying -r disk:linux=DIRECTORY. However, some Windows versions including Windows 8.1 have a quirk that require audio to also be forwarded in order for disk forwarding to work. Odd, but it works.
In any event, here's my typical bash script I use to fire up a remote desktop session over the local network.
#!/bin/sh rdesktop IP_ADDRESS \ -u USERNAME \ -g 1596x1170 \ -x l \ -a 32 \ -r clipboard:CLIPBOARD \ -r sound:local:alsa \ -r disk:linux=DIRECTORY
