I sent a message to -devel about this too. I would
LOVE to see passwordless logins to Windows TS
environments using Kerberos tickets.
Ie: I'm on a linux box, I have a Kerberos ticket for a
realm. A windows TS box exists, using that realm. I
hit rdesktop up against it, rdesktop gets a ticket for
the host principal from the KDC, sends it to the TS
server, and I'm logged in w/o a password prompt.
Ideally, rdesktop would also handle forwarding my
ticket so that I would be able to use it on the Windows
It would be k-rad. Please see my post at:
