I recently ran into a different problem with serial redirection. When using “rdesktop -r. Support USB-to-RS232 converter redirection of the port. First make sure that you've enabled port redirection in the Remote Desktop Connection.
Linux Rdesktop Command
The default keyboard map depends on the current locale (LC_* and LANG environment variables). If the current locale is unknown, the default keyboard map isen-us (a US English keyboard).
The keyboard maps are file names, which means that they are case sensitive. Dillards employee handbook. The standard keymaps are all in lowercase.
The keyboard maps are searched relative to the directories $HOME/.rdesktop/keymaps, KEYMAP_PATH (specified at build time), and $CWD/keymaps, in this order.The keyboard-map argument can also be an absolute filename.
The special value 'none' can be used instead of a keyboard map. In this case, rdesktop will guess the scancodes from the X11 event key codes using aninternal mapping method. This method only supports the basic alphanumeric keys and may not work properly on all platforms so its use is discouraged.
This tip came to me from a question someone posed internally that we had to find an answer for by hunting someone down .
This property isn’t exposed in Server Managers’ UI, so you can set it by calling this powershell command:
Set-RDVirtualDesktopCollectionConfiguration –CollectionName <farm> –CustomRdpProperty “redirectcomports:i:1”
Redirect Serial Port To Usb
Now the Remote Desktop Client will redirect its COM1 port to the Server. Why is this needed? Think Serially connected devices such as say, Smart Card readers, for instance.
Hope this helps!
