I'm using rdesktop 1.6.0 to connect to Windows Vista "Enterprise"
virtual machine, running under VMware View (if that makes any difference).
I use a command like:
vmware-view -r disk:mycomp=$HOME
to make my local home directory available on the remote Windows machine.
I find that I can browse around in "mycomp" with no problem, walking
the directory tree and opening files, but if I try to create a new folder
(using Windows' right-click --> New --> Folder) I get an error message
Error 0x8007048F: The device is not connected
Thereafter, "mycomp" is no longer accessible (until I log off the remote
machine and log back in again). If I try to do anything with it, I just
get the message:
\\tsclient\mycomp is not accessible. You might not have permission to use
this network resource. ... Attempt to access invalid address.
I've found that if I patch rdesktop using the patch found here:
the problem goes away. Is there any plan to include this patch, or
something similar in the next release of rdesktop? I took a look at
the development tree, and the version of the affected file (disk.c)
in the trunk there doesn't seem to have this patch.
We're doing a pilot project here that provides students with
access to a Windows virtual machine through rdesktop, and we'd really
like to have a fix for this bug when/if we go into production with this
Thanks in advance for any help or information.
