<h2>RDP to Node</h2>
</center>
<p>
This is used to contact to a Windows node in your experiment and get a
remote Windows Desktop using the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP).
First, you need an RDP client program installed on your computer:
<ul>
<li> There is a nice open-source RDP client for Unix and Linux at
<a href="http://www.rdesktop.org/">www.rdesktop.org</a>.</li>
<li> There is a Microsoft RDC (Remote Desktop Client) installed in
Windows XP. You can also install it from a Windows XP
installation CD onto Windows 95 through 2000. For details, see
<a href="http://www.chicagotech.net/rdesktop.htm#How%20to%20install%20Remote%20Desktop%20Connection%20client">
How to install Remote Desktop Connection client</a>.
</ul>
Clicking "RDP to Node" in the Node Options page will send your browser
a "text/x-testbed-rdp" ".tbrdp" file. In FreeBSD or Linux, you can save
the file and pass it as an argument to <code>rdp-mime.pl</code> or
associate it with <code>rdp-mime.pl</code> in your web browser. You
can download the <code>rdp-mime.pl </code><a href="rdp-mime.pl">Perl
program here</a>.
</p>
<p>
<font size='+1'><b>Instructions for Linux/FreeBSD:</b></font>
<ul>
<li>Move the <code>rdp-mime.pl</code> script into
a directory of your choice (<code>/usr/local/bin</code>,
or <code>~/bin</code> are two good places.)</li>
<li>Set up your browser to handle MIME type "text/x-testbed-rdp"
as outlined below.</li>
<li>In the Web Interface Node view, click on the "RDP to Node" link.</li>
<li>If your browser is properly configured to use <code>rdp-mime.pl</code>,
a new xterm window with an rdp session open to your node
should emerge.</li>
</ul>

<ul>
<li>Choose <code>preferences</code> from the <code>edit</code> menu.</li>
<li>Select <code>Navigator</code>, then <code>Applications</code> under
it.</li>
<li>Click the <code>New...</code> button.</li>
<li>In the <code>MIMEType</code> box, type <code>text/x-testbed-rdp</code>
</li>
<li>In the <code>Suffixes</code> box, type <code>tbc</code></li>
<li>Choose <code>Application</code> in the <code>Handled by</code>
box</li>
<li>Next to <code>Application</code>, either type the path to the
<code>rdp-mime.pl</code> script, or use <code>Choose...</code> to find
it.</li>
<li>Now, <b>be sure to</b> put a space, then <code>%s</code> after the
path to the application in the box. This tells netscape to actually
pass the control file into rdp-mime.pl (Mozilla does not require this;
see below.)</li>
<li>Click <code>OK</code>, then <code>OK</code> again.</li>

<ul>
<li>Sorry, no windows support yet, although the script is really
simple, and should be trivially convertable to a windows batch
file, or even a windows Perl script if you care to install Perl on
your windows machine.
