Advanced FreeRDP commands

Below, you can find some examples of connection setups made for different situations (network speed, audio, scaling, ...).

Auto Reconnect

To have the xfreerdp reconnect automatically after a connection timeout use parameters as in the following example:

xfreerdp-2.0.0 /v:SERVERNAME.ee.ethz.ch /d:d /u:USERNAME +auto-reconnect /auto-reconnect-max-retries:40

Auto reconnect only works without the graphics and caching parameters shown below.

Change Keyboard Language

If your keyboard settings differ from the default, look for the id of your preferred keyboard layout with the following command:

xfreerdp-2.0.0 /kbd-list

And add the matching parameter ("Swiss German" in the example below) to your xfreerdp command:

xfreerdp-2.0.0 /v:SERVERNAME.ee.ethz.ch /d:d /u:USERNAME /kbd:0x00000807
