Hi

I am administrator in Hungary in a netcafe and we have
an issue that we can not switch totaly to Linux,
because the lack of an browser that can connect to an
MS terminal (Citris). The need is big, bceause every
school has now a system called neptun (see
neptun.sze.hu) and so the users who cant use a konsol
but they can use a Firefox, they can not connect
because the lack of this feature.

After some googleing I found that:
http://www-user.tu-chemnitz.de/~mibe/sw/rdesktop/download.php3?lang=en

But the problem is with that, for me it would be better
if this plugin would exist for the latest rdesktop or
it would be exist in a debian package.

Another idea is : I think the plugin would be easyer if
the rdesktop would not be patched, only the plugin
would read the settings and run rdesktop with the
parameters! In this case the current debian rdesktop
package would fitt.

In the plugin Authors diff file I found this
nprdesktop plugin developers:
+
+Mike Becher <mibe@hrz.tu-chemnitz.de>
+Andreas Heik <anhe@hrz.tu-chemnitz.de>

So please let me help to think out a posible way to
bringe more live in Rdesktop and Mozilla/Firefox

Cheers

    The patch tracker is not the right place to submit these
    requests. I'm not a developer on rdesktop, or I'd close
    this. Please close this request and open it elsewhere.

    rlaager, why did you close this report instead of moving it
    to Features?!

    Moving to features category.

    ikonst: I didn't close it. See my previous comment. I was
    just looking at patches out of curiosity and saw something
    clearly out of place.
