WinClient

From time to time, you may be faced with a document or website, which doesn't know yet that it is a good thing to work cross-platform, and you need access to a Windows system. For this purpose, we have set up a Windows terminal server. From our Linux desktops, access to this server is possible using the command winclient.

You can log in using the same username and password you use for Linux. By default, the server should know to connect you to the STERREWACHT domain, but it never hurts to check.

Once logged in, your Linux home directory is mounted as the Z: drive so you can access all your files. If you need access to files on other disks, you can make a link (in Linux), and the Windows server will be able to access it. (well, make sure the link is a path visible over the network. So linking to /net/schelde/data1 will work, but linking to a local name like /data1 will not work)
