We use them.  But we PXE boot (Settings -> Boot on the HP interface, change to Network).  We have Thinstation (thinstation.sf.net) deployed as the PXE image.  This supports rdesktop, but also gives us a centrally managed OS for the thin clients.  Another option is 2X ThinClientServer (www.2x.com), which is a superb (commercially owned) thin client OS.

 

They're great devices.  Insight have an offer at the minute where they come with a 19" TFT monitor, priced under about $300 (for the bundle).

Hi, thanks for the prompt answer.  Great to hear that rdesktop supports the port option. 

Have you (or anyone on the list) tried using this with a thin client device such as the HP T5135?  We've not used this device before, but the Windows CE-based devices that we have used don't support this (they will only connect to port 3389).

Thanks again,
Damian.

Hi,

you can run rdesktop with host:port as a option.
for example:

rdesktop server.fff.co.nz:20001

Hope this help.

Hi there,

We're planning on providing a virtual desktop service to a client who will have a number of HP T5135 thin clients.  Connection will be via rdesktop, which is embedded on the T5135.

The virtual server will be behind a firewall and we'll only have one external IP address that we can use.  We would like to use NAT on the firewall to direct incoming connections to each virtual workstation by specifying a port number for the incoming connection.  The virtual workstations will run XP and will have unique IP addresses.  RDP will run on the default port of 3389.

This means, for example, that the firewall will NAT incoming connections as follows:

*CONNECTION TO                        MAPPED TO*
server.fff.co.nz:20001    -->     192.168.1.10:3389
server.fff.co.nz:20002    -->     192.168.1.11:3389
server.fff.co.nz:20003    -->     192.168.1.12:3389

Does anyone know if rdesktop supports the specification of port number in the manner?  Specifically has anyone tried using rdesktop on a device such as the T5135 to specify the RDP port number in this way?

Thanks in advance,
Damian.
