    Windows SS 2008 R2 allows remore console access via Linux machines, but I
    can't get it to work.

    Microsoft Blurb:

    *************************************************************

    "Remote Web Administration
    Administrators can remotely administer a server running Windows Storage
    Server 2008 from a client computer by using a browser. For computers running
    a Windows operating system and Internet Explorer 6 (or later), the Remote
    RDP Client ActiveX® control will be run. The ActiveX control offers the same
    functionality as the Remote Desktop Client, MSTSC.

    Windows Server Remote Administration Applet
    You can remotely administer Windows Storage Server 2008 from non-Microsoft
    computers by using the Windows Server Remote Administration Applet. This
    applet runs in a browser on the client computer, and it can be any of the
    following:

    · Firefox version 1.0.6 (or later)

    · Mozilla version 1.7.11 (or later)

    The Windows Server Remote Administration Applet is supported on clients
    running Java 2 Runtime Environment, version 1.4.2, on a computer running a
    Windows operating system and Internet Explorer 6 or later, or on Any of the
    following non-Microsoft operating systems:

    · Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 WS

    · Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 WS

    · SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 9

    · SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 10

    You can establish a connection through the browser. Windows Server Remote
    Administration Applet does not support sound redirection, printer or port
    redirection, or automatically starting applications.

    *************************************************************

    If you access the machine from a browser http://<ip>/desktop you get a rdp
    type of connection. Microsoft state this can be acheived from Firefox for
    example, on Linux machines with java 1.4.2

    It works fine for me using Internet Explorer and XP workstations etc, but
    using Firefox I get an error page stating "The remote desktop page is not
    available from this browser"



    Anyone have any ideas?

  4. Harnub,

    I would suggest to start a new thread instead of replying to another thread.
    This way you can state exactly what your requirements are, what errors
    you've come across attempting to configure the server, etc, and someone will
    respond with assistance in your new thread. It will be easier for you to
    track, too.
