Linux rdesktop client disk device redirection
While using rdesktop to access a windows machine from linux we can specify device redirection(with -r command line option) for a local folder in linux machine. This makes a folder in linux client to be mounted as a share in windows machine, which can be viewed from windows “My Computer”.
The following example demonstrates the procedure to map a directory named “/home/u1” in linux machine to a share named “test” in windows.
The mounted share as viewed from inside the windows machine is shown in the image below,
