Hello,

I am trying to connect to a Windows 8.1 system using FreeRDP. The problem is that the system in question uses "Microsoft Accounts" which means that authentication information is in the form:

Username: MicrosoftAccount\user@live.com

I tried the following:

Example 1:
Code:

/usr/bin/xfreerdp /u:MicrosoftAccount\{MicrosoftEmailAddress} /p:{Password} /cert-ignore +clipboard /f +async-input +async-update +compression /v:{IP}


Example 2:
Code:

/usr/bin/xfreerdp /u:{MicrosoftEmailAddress} /p:{Password} /d:MicrosoftAccount /cert-ignore +clipboard /f +async-input +async-update +compression /v:{IP}


But these do not work.

I also posted this on the FreeRDP mailing lists but no reply as of yet.

Any ideas?

Thank you for your time.

well, either try to escape the "\" by a 2nd "\" -or- try to to figure out if you could separate passing the items to the server via appropriate options.
