Work at SourceForge, help us to make it a better place! We have an immediate need for a Support Technician in our San Francisco or Denver office.
We use a HP thin client which uses RDESKTOP for its connection software. I am wondering when RDP 6.0 support for Vista will be available?

jeah that is a big problem
Not only Vista .. Win 2003 server R2 too
".. has been forced into "FIPS mode" and now I'm unable to connect from a linux machine. .."
and some next info :
MS' site says that prior to setting fips compliant encryption rdp uses as "RC4 algorithm with a 56-bit key length"
and after you enable FIPS compliant encryption "the RDP channel is encrypted by using 3DES in Cipher Block Chaining (CBC) mode with a 128-bit key length"
maybe is it easy ??
Yes would be nice to be able to connect using NLA (Network Layer Authentication)
I think it will be more important to make RDP 6.1 support with new bulk compression.
We have seen a marked improvement of the performance of java apps running on Windows in RDP v6 sessions as opposed to v5. So we'd also like to see RDP v6 implemented too.
We also use a thin client, in this case Igel boxes.
I would also like to add my voice to the requests to add RDP 6 support. Connecting to a vista system at only 16 bit color is not pretty!
Also adding my vote for RDP 6 support for the increased security.
I'm adding my vote for RDP 6 support - ThinClients using linux cannot have sound when RDP'ing to a Windows Server 2008 and have sound support. I've tried compiling with this patch: http://article.gmane.org/gmane.network.rdesktop.devel/2808 but had no success.
That was a bit convoluted: ThinClients using linux cannot have sound when RDP'ing.
