I have a very quiet, efficient server that mainly serves files all day, which I control over RDP. The regular remote desktop client allows one to play sound locally (on the connecting computer/device).
I would like to be able to connect to the server from my Nokia N900 to play music streams on the server, which is connected to a stereo system, but the N900 remote desktop client doesn't have a setting to control sound playback and therefore "steals" the audio output from the server.
So my question is this: is there a way to force local (on the server) audio playback on my server during an RDP session?
(Switching to VNC or similar is something I'd like to avoid for now.)
