Remote Desktop (new Version)

Hi, the current MorphOS version of RDesktop is being ported to 68k, graciously, by the developer. 

I am currently testing a beta version which is working fine on my Amiga 4000 system.

Unfortunately it does not work on Amithlon or on my Vampire system.  We even tried a no-fpu version but it still doesn't start.  I am wondering if one of the Vampire team would be willing to test it to see if they can figure out why.

Thanks please let me know.

Darren

Just an update on this: It is working now on the Vampire and on Amithlon.  The issue is starting from the icon, perhaps not recognizing/reading Tooltypes properly, so it was likely working all along.  When started from shell with arguments it works.  Just from an icon isn't working (yet).

Cool! Is there a download for it? Just checked Aminet and only saw one for OS4 dated 2006. :)

Not yet.  We're working out the last few bugs before releasing it.

Thx for porting Rdesktop to 68K again, used it quite a bit many years ago on my A4K system, would love to have an updated version on my current Vampire system!

Can't figure out how to send message to you, can you DM me on Twitter (@smartroad78) and can swap emails there? I'm running an A1200 with Vampire on 2.12

  There is an OS 3.9 compatible MUI version of Remote Desktop that works well from Icon, you can find it here:

  In this link instead there also is the RDesktop AROS Full Version:

Yup that second link is to my webpage.  This version will be updated from the older versions (including AROS), to the same level as the current MorphOS version.

Hey Darren,

Thanks very much for keeping us up to date on this. I used RDesktop sometime ago and was impressed with what it could do and looking forward to seeing this get the update treatment.
