RDS at D-ITET

ISG.EE provides a RDS environment that allows all D-ITET employees to access a session-based Windows server. This server hosts several Microsoft programs as well as some other software, most of it runs on Windows only.

RDS Connection

Please use VPN in order to connect successfully from external networks. We offer several ways how to connect to the RDS servers:

Linux, MacOS X, Windows (Web Browser Based)

{i} Myrtille is an open source Git project, based on FreeRDP. You can change the name of the destination server. This allows you to use it as a web based RDP client to connect to any computer at D-ITET (theoretically).

Linux

FreeRDP Client for Linux

Example with FreeRDP (version 2.0.0 or newer):

  • Connect to https://worli.ee.ethz.ch/RDWeb

  • Login with your nethz credentials: "d\USERNAME"
  • Download the rdp file to a location you remeber and name it SERVERNAME.rdp (for example vela.rdp)
  • xfreerdp SERVERNAME.rdp /gu:USERNAME /gd:d /u:USERNAME /d:d

Users with ISG.EE managed Linux workstations have the option to use the SEPP package xfreerdp-2.0.0.

Advanced commands

MacOS X

Microsoft Remote Desktop 10 from apple app store

Example with Microsoft Remote Desktop 10 Client for Mac:

  • Install "Microsoft Remote Desktop 10" from apple app store
  • Setup the gateway worli.ee.ethz.ch
  • Configre both users, the gateway and the RDP user with "d\USERNAME"
  • Launch your connection

Screenshots of the login procedure

MS Windows

Microsoft Default RDP Client

Example with Default mstsc.exe RDP Client:

  • Go to https://worli.ee.ethz.ch/RDWeb and login

  • Download the *.rdp file for the connection you would like to use.
  • Enter "d\USERNAME" and password and wait for the user profile to load.

Advanced Setup

Known Issues

MS Webclient

  • Bad Scroll behavior with Firefox and Chrome
  • Colors can appear slightly too bright
  • Sometimes black page when resizing browser window (reconnect necessary)
  • Annoying copy paste warning "Confirm the copy to your local clipboard"

Myrtille Webclient

  • No audio support
  • Not as fast as MS Webclient when working with 3D apps or video streams
  • Scaling not possible after login. Only zooming function (not really an issue).
  • Slightly different colors
  • Can be CPU hungry if screen changes a lot

FreeRDP

  • Sometimes buggy, when working with 2 physical monitors (some lines can flicker)
  • Steals focus of gnome-screensaver when active so entering a password is impossible
