IT offers some very nice instructions for Mac and Windows users. However, if you're a Linux user, SOL.
Seriously? I use Linux 'cause I'm cheap. and stubborn. and willing to DIY. Not because all information is already stuffed into my brain cells. hrmph.
Here's what to do:
- know the address of the target windows server. duh!
- install rdesktop
- open a terminal window
- type: sudo apt-get install rdesktop
- you will be prompted for your admin password.
- type: rdesktop dept.server.address.edu
I guess that was easy.
