RHEV 3.0 & RDP

Latest response

Does RHEV 3.0 support RDP for Windows Desktops?


If the guest agent is installed (which we need for the IP address) then RHEV supports RDP to the Windows VM in addition to spice.

Hi Andrew,


But how do I use RDP to connect from a Linux Client.. is this possible ?

If you want to connect from a linux system to a MS Windows VM via RDP, just use "rdesktop".




From a Windows client, RHEV supplies an activeX package of mstsc. For Linux this is not possible, so instaed you have to use rdesktop or xfreerdp. I would suggest the latter, as it supports the newer versions of the RDP protocol
