Hello,I'm looking at setting up a thin client terminal that connects to my ltspserver. Once into the ltsp session I'll need rdesktop to connect to myWindows VM. I've heard that I can can connect directly to an RDP sessionfrom LDM (the LTSP login screen). I'll have to review how to do this. Mymain concern though is my connection from the thin client for my keyboard,mouse, usb hand scanner and usb weight balance.Will I be able to pass through these usb devices through rdesktop to mywindows VM? Does it 'just work' or do I need to use special software inltsp to assist?Anyone give advice on how best to set this up?Thank you.
