Connecting to the Microsoft Terminal Server (RDP)

In order to redirect USB devices to remote desktop session, FreeRDP must be used in conjunction with FabulaTech FtPlugins extension for remote desktop software. FtPlugins extension must be installed alongside with FabulaTech USB for Remote Desktop as shown on installation page.

To add additional functionality from FabulaTech to FreeRDP run once:

$ sudo /opt/ftplugins/bin/ -i

There are 2 ways of usage. First, just launch:

$ /opt/ftplugins/bin/ftlaunch

Second, use FreeRDP directly. It depends on the installed FreeRDP version:

FreeRDP v1.1, v2.0 and above:

$ xfreerdp /dvc:ftrdpbr /u:USER /p:PASSWORD /v:SERVER

FreeRDP v1.0:

$ xfreerdp --plugin ftrdpbr -u USER -p PASSWORD SERVER
