WebTop: rDesktop 1.7.0 Available

Atrix 4G owners out there will be interested to hear that rDesktop 1.7.0 is available by XDA forum member FallenAngelUK.

rDesktop is a terminal services client for Linux, which allows you to connect to a terminal services session of any Windows machine with Remote Desktop enabled.

This is a newer release of rDesktop than what is available in the Debian repos.

In order to use the client, you’ll need access to a terminal from WebTop and a small amount of Linux shell knowledge.

The XDA dev has posted that this has been invaluable for getting onto his desktop and servers at work, so please post any feedback in the application thread. Full details on how to use rDesktop are in the same thread.

I've been around XDA since 2007 when I bought the HTC Touch, well things have moved on a lot since then, and I've tried my hand at developing for WM and Android (still learning), but wanted to contribute more by becoming a News Writer for XDA.I write mainly Android articles, and some Windows Mobile. We're always sifting through the masses of threads for front page news, but do let me or the other guys know if you think anything is newsworthy including any breaking news!
