I have raspberry pi with Raspbian “wheezy”. I am trying to rdesktop from pi to win 8. I use rdesktop 1.7.1. My problem is, that I can't share local resouce for ex. local folder.

rdesktop -u martin -r disk:pi=/home/pi/share <ip>

I can connect, login, work .... But when trying to access \tsclient\pi I get error: Win cannot access ....

I also tried chmor -r 777 for share folder

Thanks for any advice/help...


I'd suggest giving FreeRDP a try instead of rdesktop. FreeRDP supports NTLM & NLA as well as a number of other protocols within RDP that rdestkop does not. More details on their wikipedia page as well.
