front-end for viewing of remote desktops in GNOME



tsclient is a GNOME program for remotely accessing Microsoft Windows NT/2000 Terminal Services and XP Remote Desktop Sharing as implemented by the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP). Using the rdesktop program as a backend, tsclient allows users to access and view their desktops as stored on remote Windows NT/2000/XP servers.

Some of tsclient's features include:

  • A GNOME panel applet to quickly launch saved RDP files
  • Support for RDPv5 and rdesktop-1.3 arguments
  • Reading .rdp files in the MS Unicode format
  • Writing .rdp files in ASCII (for compatibility with the MS client)
  • A "RDP picker" which lists .rdp files in ~/.tsclient/ and launches rdesktop from the rdp file when selected tsclient also supports:
  • VNC clients (*vncviewer)
  • Citrix ICA client
  • X via Xnest Author: Erick Woods
