I am using Ubuntu, and have tested a lot of rdp clients, right now I am using "Remmina RDC". As a web developer I, need to transfer files to the server "Windows Server" and vice versa. I am new to Ubuntu, so I need help! Best option for me is a Windows-like mstsc client, but with some other options. please...

The server is not in the same localhost!

Does it need to be rdp? Any particular reason not to use windows shares and samba? – terdon Mar 17 '14 at 16:13
Yes, becouse Admin's doesent want to give windows share! – unixe Mar 17 '14 at 16:17
Aaa.... and the server is not in the same localhost – unixe Mar 17 '14 at 16:18
OK, please edit your question and add that detail as well as any other special requirements you might have. – terdon Mar 17 '14 at 16:18
You don't: rdp isn't a file transfer protocol. – psusi Mar 17 '14 at 18:12
