Re: Audio from rdesktop Terminal Server 2003

I know the basic function is working because I can get sound to a terminal services client from a Windows environment. I just don’t know how to test the card and/or driver from Linux (live CD).

For starters, remove all of the sound drivers from your image except for emu10k1. That is the only driver you should need. From personal experience, having more sound drivers than necessary could cause problems.
Next, you will need to edit your rdesktop session options in thinstation.conf.buildtime to include sound redirection. More information on how to do this can be found here:
After you’ve done all that and the sound still doesn’t work, try issuing a gpupdate /force on the Windows client and then reboot the PC. I have been told that a simple log off after gpupdate should suffice, but from personal experience I have always had to reboot to get it to work.

I have been using ThinStation for a while now but did not choose to set up the local audio. I recently received a request to enable local audio. I have made the changes on the server (W2k3 Enterprise) to enable sound redirect and I have tested it from a Windows box using Remote Desktop successfully.
I read some threads on sound but am still stuck. I have tried using the Live CD and have built a TS-O-Matic image with all sound drivers but am not getting audio to the local pc.
The test system I am using has an older Sound Blaster Live CT4780 PCI sound card.
I am not a Linux user so I am unsure on how to test and see if the driver is loading or if the device is working. Can anyone provide some guidance on how test the device and/or driver?
Thanks in advance.
