Hi to all,
I am experiencing some problems with USB disk redirection with rdesktop-1.6
I am connecting a linux client, with a linux custom distribution (linux
from scratch) with glibc 2.3.6 and kernel 2.6.20, to the terminal server
of a windows XP PC, virtualized with VMWare infrastructure.
The usb storage devices are redirected to the XP terminal server with
/mnt/usbdevices is the directory where all the usb storage devices are
mounted, on the linux client, with different directories (es.
/mnt/usbdevices/disk1, /mnt/usbdevices/disk2, etc.)
All works well during the rdesktop session except for some USB storage
device: they appear on the server side, but after some time the server
avoids the access to the usb resources... sometime in the RDP session I
have an authorization error, sometime I see the redirected device as an
I can say that the problem is related to the RDP session, because while
in the RDP session I can't use the redirected usb device (ex.
usbdevices\disk1), on the linux client I can normally work on the
mounted dir /mnt/usbdevices/disk1.
I can't understand if the problem is related to rdesktop program or to
the server side infrastructure.
Has anyone experienced the same problem?
Many thanks in advance.
