The world of RDP
is was not really sunny in term of free software, until recently.
A new RDP Proxy called ReDemPtion (got it ?) just appeared on Github.
As I’ve seen it grow for over 7 months, I can only wonder what will come out of it, such as nicer and nicer features and better support and stability. There was a long way down to debug and it’s still in
progress until the protocol layers are hardenned enough.
Here’s a selection on the current roadmap:
- Create independant libraries with protocol layers, meaning easy and coherent implementation of clients AND servers with redemption’s library
- Create a few sample server applications using Redemption, so it’s easy to debug RDP clients and servers
- Make pluggable interface usable, moving toward ANY to ANY protocol proxy! Imagine X to VNC using redemption!
- and so on…
Just imagine what will be possible! At last some simple way to transparently comunicate to Windows or Linux, using both as both. To me this means a real terminal client
when I’m stuck on Windows, for others this would mean installing Linux at work and work transparently on their Windows servers.
A bit later, I’ll tell you about the documentation system of the project.
PS : I’m NOT the author of Redemption, but I did work on it.
