Managing Windows from a Linux client?

I am just starting out with both Novell and specifically zenworks. Coming from a Microsoft background Linux has been a bit of a struggle as well. I have always done well in learning new product by using the product almost exclusively in my daily activity. I am looking at doing that with Linux. I have already started with the server side but would like to have my laptop to be Linux as well so I am forced to stay in that mode for most of my day. A few things that have made this transition difficult is the lack of client side tools or at least I haven't found anything for Linux.
How do you remote a windows computer from zenworks? I found the command rdesktop but this isn't the same as using the zenworks interface.

Also does anyone have suggestions for other Novell products and Linux? Filr and GroupWise also don't seem to have a client. Are they all intended to be web based functions under a Linux client?

Talyn75,

> lack of client side tools


that's what ZCC is for - you should be able to do just about everything
via that

Re: Managing Windows from a Linux client?

I have been able to do most of the work via that interface. I hadn't noticed the remote agent for Linux but will look at it again.

On my Windows desktop I noticed I am now prompted to update the remote agent and a few other client plugins. Does the /zenworks-setup location have all those MSI's that can be updated at one time or is this just something I need to update each as it is presented?

Thank again Shaun

Talyn75,

the files are there, just not accessible via the downloads page - you'd
have to go the server's file system. It's easier just to upgrade as
prompted, there aren't many of them
