Woah. Now _that_ is very cool. If you or somebody can get it serving up W2K
screens, you're onto a serious winner here. Imagine a network of cheap Linux
desktops serving up independent W2K sessions via standard W2KS/TS...
Mind-blowing thin(nish) client solution!

Is there a mailing list? I couldn't see a link to one on the page...

So, does this run _on_ NT4 Terminal Server?  I'm sorry, I don't understand
the "Linux-hosted" part, and the fact that the web page says "hopefully
someone will port this to NT4"....

Announce: RDP to VNC

the wonders of open source brings you true
multi-user VNC access for NT4 Terminal Servers

http://www-lce.eng.cam.ac.uk/~tme23/vdesktop

it's fast. it's fantastic. it lets anyone with a 
vnc client connect to terminal server. 

rdp2vnc is basically a translating proxy between VNC
and RDP protocols. it's not 100% complete but plenty 
usable. 

some caveats:

 - NT4 only, no support for win2k
 - Raw, RRE, CopyRect only
 - no built in httpd
 - no authentication (authenticate by TS login)
 - no VNC session persistence (it persists in TS)
 - no shared session support
 - is linux (unix) hosted
