I think you all know that I’m totally in love with the Asus eee that my wife gave me for Christmas. It’s a sweet little machine to use in front of the TV. However, sometimes I just find it necessary to have access to some of the things on my windows machine (bookmarks, word documents, visio documents, etc) Today I was happy to find instructions to do remote desktop from my Asus eee to my windows xp machine.
Here they are as much for my reference as yours:
CTRL-ALT-T to get a terminal window
Full screen remote desktop
rdesktop -f 192.168.15.100
Remote Desktop in a window
rdesktop -g 800×420 192.168.15.100
(Of course replace it with your IP address)
Add -u username to avoid having to enter the user. I still wish I could add a launcher so I didn’t have to do it command line, but I haven’t taken the time to figure that out yet.
