When I create an rdp-file on the windows server, like for notepad, I end up with a file called notepad.rdp
Executing that file gives me what I want, that is a session with only notepad. But still I cant get rdesktop to do the same.
I use a line like this;
rdesktop -a 16 -A -s "c:\seamlessrdp\seamlessrdpshell.exe c:\Windows\System32\notepad.exe" serverip -d domain -u user -p password
I tried the same line with a server 2003, and there it works.
It was from another linux workstation though, since that server is on another network. But that should not make any difference?
