Well, it's not a 100% replacement for Windows rdc. Windows rdc seems to 
be able to transport a SMB connection through the rdp connection so the 
user can access removable media on the client machine and this access is 
restricted to the user having the rdp session.

Any ideas how to make this with *nix client? The users are moblile and 
can use any client machine (and they even don't know the identity of the 
machines) so the only reasonable way to authenticate the callback SMB 
connections is to "bind" the access to the rdp connection somehow so 
the other users cannot access the media.
