#196 Rdesktop freezes computer

Mirek K

I try made a terminal computer using for this ubuntu and rdesktop. Conputer need to work all time 24/7 and must be very easy to use. Plan is simple... When user log in on the Ubuntu then automaticly is running rdesktop (windows server 2008 with only one aplication) but when I close or logon with server then Ubuntu logon too. That works but I have little problem.

When I run automaticly aplication on the windows with rdesktop I haven't Start or logon button and I can't login or close rdesktop. I know... I can use Ctrl+alt+Enter button but this is not possible because I on this computer, you can only use one application on a remote desktop and nothing else. Is possible to run some thing like on Remmina or Windows RDP... signboard at the top of the screen where I can off the RDesktop?
Second problem is when the network disconnect for a moment. Rdesktop freezes and not working anything. Then only one way is hard reset.

To sum up the problems:
1. How I can off rdesktop when I can't used Ctrl+alt+Enter and I haven't logon button?
2. Rdesktop freezes computer if the network disconnects for a moment.
