i connect to ltsp server using both thin client and rdp
i use the same user to login
whatever i change while using xrdp , it shows instantenously
on fat thin client
what i change on fat-thin it shows instantenously on other XRDP , but when change at XRDP , it will now show on thin-fat client unless i prefresh
hima: How high are you?
vlt , i think you are at the wrong place
I think you need to explain (at least to me) what you mean with a “change” that “shows”, what a “fat thin” client is and what a “thin-fat”, the difference between “while using xrdp” and “at xrdp”, what “prefresh” is and if you mean “not” when you say “now”.
i am talking about connecting to ltsp server using fat client
hima: You’d help me understand the problem if you took each of my marked phrases and explained it (maybe with an example).
hima: Can you give an example for a “change”?
What kind of changes are you talking about... installing applications, changing UI colors?
i iam logged in to the Fat Client , and at the same time logged using XRDP with the same user
on fat client :if i created a folder on desktop , it reflects rapidly on xrdp
but if i create or rename or do whatever on xrdp , it will refresh on fat client after i press f5
i think it is a matter of screen refresh
in fat-client client
may be it is something in lts.conf?
Your fat client writes to the remote file system. This occurs immediately.
xrdp is a session running locally on the server.
i could show you s nap of viedo
cause it did not refresh at my fat client while remote session is running
any way , thanks for giving the hint ,that it should not be like that
Are you even listening?
If you change something locally in the xrdp session it might not get “announced” to all the remote file systems that very moment.
then , the right thing should be declared , regarding remote session and fat client syncs
I think most people only log in at 1 place at a time when using LTSP
hima: Sorry, I didn’t understand that. Who should do what?
but , if i want to help some one logged in at fat client, while i am online
i need to login using remote session
vlt , execuse me for my english
i mean , it would be better if someone explained that
if you're providing remote assistence just remember than you're working with a remote filesystem, so you have to press F5 :)
you might want to connecto the fat client, in that case you'll see precisely what the user sees including mouse cursor etc.
yes i see
i am talking about case , where
someone outside the local network of ltsp server
and wanted to help a user at fat client
hima: I just did exactly that.
i use already
I have no idea how well that one works for Linux clients to be honest, I only rarely use it when helping remote Windows users
i mean i use teamviewer all the time with windows
they have linux binaries on their site as well, but again I don't know if that particular product works nicely on linux
I often use Skype too btw
do skype do functions as teamviewer?
you can share your desktop when you're in a video call, works decently most of the time
if you are in a video chat with someone they can share specific windows or their whole desktop
and it is fast enogh?
as a remote assistent you cannot click, but you can see what they see
I never want to click anyway, I want to teach people what to do so they won't call me again :-)
teamviewer is a dominat in windows area
fast enough for helping people - it's not nearly as fast as RDP
i used to use teamviewer
helping people in localnetwork
Speed wise what I think it goes like this: X11 - VNC/Skype - TeamViewer - RPD
hima: I use x11vnc on the client to help users.
I never use Windows, but I'm seriously impressed by the performance and functionality of RPD
I can reduce the colordepth of the transmitted image on the fly in case it’s too slow.
i use thinstation to initiate rdp for windows hosts
we have alot of 600Mhz 128MB ram\
using thinstation image on CDROM
and can connect to any remote session
|12:29||* quinox will go AFK now, there's a sun shining on his balcony that demands he should come out and play|
is the only function of LTSP server to have fat or thin clients
is there a way to use it as remote boot server for different os
hima: Yes, there is. I use its tftp and nbd parts for print servers, for example.
what is the main difference between pxelinux.0 and ndb
so all what i need is preparing the other image
change default configs in pxelinux.cfg directory

i read somewhere i can RDP to windows from fatclient
Yes, SCREEN_07="xfreerdp params"
it did not work for me
i set it like that
could i give SCREEN_08 ti RDP m while SCREEN_0 for ldp?
If you mean ldm, then yes
I don't know what ldp is
rdp ddi not work for my
|17:05||ntanchel has left IRC (ntanchel!b8b49978@gateway/web/freenode/ip.220.127.116.11, Ping timeout: 260 seconds)|
I don't know what ddi is
ddi not = did not
From that xterm, find an xfreerdp command that works
Then, put that command in SCREEN_08, in one line
Don't use RDP_SERVER etc
i am managing now
SCREEN_08="xterm xfreerdp /v:IP"
if set SCREEN_08="xterm" it opens the terminal
if i issued xfreerdm command from the termainl it come to certificate
i think the problem is with certification mismatch
it is working
xfreerdm /v:18.104.22.168 /p:3389 /u:user /p:password

i had seached for xfreerdp
it uses RDP_SERVER
As I said, don't use it, it was there for the ltsp-cluster user interface
Just don't put those variables anywhere, forget that they exist
that was the only way it worked for medireclty
such config brings me a menu screen
to choose wich system
Do you have some question there?
You said a few things which I don't agree with, but I didn't understand if you are asking me something or not
Are you asking something?
i will pastebin
You pasted that instead of pasting the url, https://jphein.com/spice-session-screen-script-for-ltsp-thin-clients-running-under-ubuntu/ ?
This talks about writing a spice screen script, which has nothing to do with rdp
the script includes rdp
is it a different scenario?
rdp support is in the xfreerdp screen script
There's no need to go to random sites and do random things
i tried the same script but it ddi not work when i set screent to xterm
it did not work when i set SCREEN_07=xterm
hima: In case `xfreerdm /v:22.214.171.124 /p:3389 /u:user /p:password` from xterm did not work: try xfreerdp instead.
