For D-BAUG IGP user, see here for using the institute owned Terminal Server.
For D-PHYS user: We offer a Windows 2008 Terminal Server that allows you to log in to Windows from a non-Windows computer (LTSP thin client or Linux) with rdesktop.
The intention of the Terminal Server is to offer native Windows applications for users working on a non-Windows systems without them having to install the whole system.
There is just a small set of applications installed on the Terminal Server which can be enlarged if needed (see below).
As always, we're grateful for any comments or suggestions regarding our services. Just drop us a line.
$ rdesktop -d AD -x l -z -k en-us -x 0x80 -g 1280x1024 winlogin.phys.ethz.ch
and log in with your D-PHYS user account. You can replace
en-us with you favorite keyboard layout and
1280×1024 with another windows size if you wish.
-k de-chinstead of
Under Mac OS X, you can install the Application “Remote Desktop Connection Client” from Microsoft.
After starting the program, you can connect to “winlogin.phys.ethz.ch”. Make sure to change the Domain to “AD” at the login window and log in with your D-PHYS user account.
The Windows Terminal Server is only reachable from inside the D-PHYS network but you can tunnel your Remote Desktop session with SSH on either OS;
If you come from outside of the Physics Department, you need to open an appropriate SSH tunnel beforehand, e.g. run
$ ssh -l yourloginname -C -f -L 3389:winlogin.phys.ethz.ch:3389 login.phys.ethz.ch sleep 60 $ rdesktop -d AD -x l -z -k en-us -x 0x80 -g 1280x1024 localhost
yourloginname with your D-PHYS account name.
/Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app and paste the following command to open an SSH tunnel
ssh -l yourloginname -C -f -L 3389:winlogin.phys.ethz.ch:3389 login.phys.ethz.ch sleep 60
yourloginname with your D-PHYS account name. Then open the
Remote Desktop Connection application and connect to
127.0.0.1. Make sure to change the Domain to “AD” at the login window and log in with your D-PHYS user account.
