At work, I have access to a "virtual" Windows server terminal, which I can access through my Ubuntu Linux via
Additionally, there are printer shares on this network, which can be accessed from any Windows PC on the network (including the "virtual" terminals); lets say the address is
Now, I open
\\printshares.company.com in the "virtual" terminal in
tsclient since it has a Bug #94743 in tsclient (Ubuntu): “Terminal Server Client isn't able to copy to/from clipboard”) - and I can see all printers fine..
However, when I'm on my Linux machine directly on the work network, I try and do something like:
$ ping printshares.company.com PING printshares.company.com (192.168.0.200) 56(84) bytes of data. ^C64 bytes from 192.168.0.200: icmp_req=1 ttl=124 time=10.4 ms --- printshares.company.com ping statistics --- 1 packets transmitted, 1 received, 0% packet loss, time 0ms rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 10.450/10.450/10.450/0.000 ms $ smbclient -L \\printshares.company.com -U MYUSERNAME Enter MYUSERNAME's password: session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE
Although the server cannot be pinged - at least the
ping command tells me
printshares.company.com can resolve to an IP (obviously, I replaced the real IP with a local one; but otherwise the ping response is left); however, as it can be seen, I am getting
Now, there could be many things wrong here - all those Windows workgroups and such could be wrong etc..
Is it possible to retrieve the - let's call them "connection settings" - from the Windows terminal session, so I could replicate them under Linux when running
(Needless to say, the IT department running these Windows servers is quite irritated by people using Linux; and will offer no support to those kinds of "customers". Furthermore, if obtaining those settings requires some installation on the client session, won't help me much, since I don't have permissions to install anything on the Windows terminal session. Still, I'd like to know if there is any kind of solution for this)...
