2010-02-18 No license to rdesktop for me: I recentl ... 10 years ago
No license to rdesktop for me: I recently got a really weird error from rdesktop:
koos@leek:~$ rdesktop -M -g 1200x900 -d something terminalserver
Autoselected keyboard map en-us
disconnect: No valid license available.
Some searching found me: License to rdesktop. Indeed, setting a different hostname from my own hostname helps:
koos@leek:~$ rdesktop -M -g 1200x900 -d something -n leeks terminalserver
Autoselected keyboard map en-us
/users/koos/.rdesktop/licence.leeks.new: Permission denied
WARNING: Remote desktop does not support colour depth 24; falling back to 16
The license file error has to do with another workaround. But maybe the running out of licenses for 'leek' is because I never give licenses back. Why is all this software very busy with making sure money is made for its maker and not busy with helping the user.
