Re: [K12OSN] Scholastic Read 180 stumping me



My testing has mainly been from an XP box -- I figure stay within Windows
until it works, then push my luck Linux rdesktop. But I've also tried
rdestkop with identical results.

And yes, for what it's worth it works on the host server, and it works
from a client installed locally on an XP machine. So it looks to me like a
problem between RDP, RDP/Terminal Server, and the fact that the software
was not designed right in the first place.

Thanks again,
Tom Wolfe
