Ulteo Java RDP client
Ulteo is seeking a Java/C developer contractor to port some additional rdesktop features to an existing Java RDP applet.
Ulteo is an open-source company and we are looking for improving an existing RDP Java applet client that run on Linux, Windows and MacOS. It's based on the "properJavaRDP" (http://properjavardp.sourceforge.net/) which is an open source Java RDP client for Windows Terminal Services that is actually a port of rdesktop.
This has a significant impact on the development, at least on sound support.
New features to be added to the java applet fit the rdesktop following options:
-r disk:=,... Redirects a path to the share \\tsclient\ on the server (requires Windows XP or newer). The share name is limited to 8 characters. -r printer:[=],... Redirects a printer queue on the client to the server. The is the name of the queue in your local system. defaults to a simple PS-driver unless you specify one. Keep in mind that you need a 100% match in the server environment, or the driver will fail. The first printer on the command line will be set as your default printer. -r sound:[local|off|remote] Redirects sound generated on the server to the client. "remote" only has any effect when you connect to the console with the -0 option. (Requires Windows XP or newer). -c The initial working directory for the user. Often used in combination with -s to set up a fixed login environment. -P Enable caching of bitmaps to disk (persistent bitmap caching). This generally improves performance (especially on low bandwidth connections) and reduces network traffic at the cost of slightly longer startup and some disk space. (10MB for 8-bit colour, 20MB for 15/16-bit colour and 30MB for 24-bit colour sessions)
Being able to add an USB redirection channel and better compression management would be a plus.
Please send experience and motivation information, timeframe, plus estimated cost for that work (price you're requiring) to : gduval -AT- ulteo -DOT- com
