At the moment, I'm using the following command to start an FreeRDP session:
$ sudo xfreerdp /v:farm.company.com /d:company.com \ /u:oshiro /p:oshiro_password /g:rds.company.com
Works fine. However, I don't want the password to be in the command line like that. So I tried it without the password:
$ sudo xfreerdp /v:farm.company.com /d:company.com /u:oshiro /g:rds.company.com
And I got a connection failure message instead of some sort of dialog box or prompt asking me to enter in a password.
Is it possible to get this to prompt the user for a password?
UPDATE: Omitting the
/p switch, I get the following:
oshiro@ubuntu:~$ xfreerdp /v:farm.company.com /d:company.com -u:oshiro /g:rds.company.com connected to rds.company.com:443 connected to rds.company.com:443 Could not open SAM file!
