Linux / unix

We recommend using the program xfreerdp . If it is not included in the Linux distribution used by the user, it can be compiled from source code from the project page freerdp or use pre-prepared packages, eg from ap. You can then connect, for example, with the command xfreerdp -d NTFI -u your_login (The program will list other switches at startup xfreerdp without parameters).

The alternative is rdesktop : rdesktop -d NTFI -u your_login . The size of the window is set with the switch -g . You can switch to fullscreen by pressing Ctrl + Alt + Enter.


Project users MacPorts they can simply install the FreeRDP package with the command port install freerdp and then use the command in the terminal /opt/local/bin/xfreerdp -d NTFI -u your_login as described in section for Linux .

Another option is installation Microsoft Remote Desktop client .

Please ignore any message "Restart your computer to finish installing updates". We were unable to set it not to appear, while maintaining that the available updates are automatically installed, but if a restart is required, the terminal server will not restart itself.

Log off / disconnect from the terminal server

After finishing work on the server, it is necessary to log out by running the script odhlášení uživatele which can be found on the desktop. It is not always necessary to log off the session, the connection can only be interrupted by closing the client, when the applications running on the server remain running and after the next connection it is possible to continue the interrupted activity. Interrupted sessions are stored on the server for a maximum of two days , then the server terminates them.

However, even if you just disconnect, we recommend that you save all work in progress and open documents, because if no one is active on the server, it may be restarted to complete the update installation, although we try to perform such restarts to affect users as little as possible.

User settings of the terminal server environment (profile)
