#84 command to transfer files to/from local resource


I like the ability in 1.4.1 and with the windows client
to be able to login to a terminal server and have your
client local hard drives accessible from the server.
What I don't like is having to login and have to wait
for my session to load.

What I think would be cool is to have a command line
version that lets you login to the terminal server and
then transfer files to the system, and that's it.
Something very similiar to scp or sftp and how it uses
the ssh daemon to do file transfers.

I know you can use netbois for file transfers, but it
would be nice to be able to block those ports and only
need 3389 plus say 80/443 if you are a web server.

    Hello there!
    I was wondering if something happenend in this case?
    Since i am about to write my master work for my university
    and company (i am at the university of cooperative education
    tit.ba-loerrach.de)about "File Transfer within RDP-Protocol"
    i have a few questions for the start. Maybe some Answers are
    quite simple to answer for RDP experienced Guys like you.

    -i wanted to know if it is theoretically impossible to do
    that? If yes then i quickly have to find another theme for
    my master work.
    -are there already complete solutions/applications which
    exists for this?
    -if someone has good literature he can recommend for me i'd
    highly appreciate this!

    thx in advance! jn

    Change the shell to a file-copying program, e.g. (off the
    top of my head):

    rdesktop -g 700x350 -a8 -u username -p- -xm -r
    disk:copy=/tmp/rdp1 -s "cmd /k copy \\tsclient\copy %

    Which should (not tested) copy files from /tmp/rdp1 to
    the "Copied" folder in your home directory (often the same
    as %UserProfile%). This would be very simple to wrap in a
    script that accepted files and a target location.

    Bear in mind, however, that RDP is not as secure as scp or
    sftp (although better than NBT), and it would be better
    (and probably easier) to install Cygwin on the target

    Doh - all backslashes should of course be doubled-up in
    the sample command...
