CM Logo Connection Manager Logo


In order for cm to work properly you must have python installed. So far, it has only been tested with python versions 2.2 and 2.3. 2.0 should work, any versions prior to that will not.

You also may need to install ssh, rsh, and/or rdesktop, depending on the kinds of systems you will be connecting to.


Linux RPM

Installation from an RPM is quite easy. Download the appropriate file, and as root type:

# rpm -Uvh cm-1.0rc1.noarch.rpm

The rpms have been tested on Redhat 9.0 and Mandrake 9.2.


To install from the source distribution, download the cm-1.0rc1.tar.gz file. Untar it somewhere, it will create a directory called "cm-1.0rc1". Go to that directory, and as root type:

# make install

This method is known to work on Redhat 9.0, Mandrake 9.2, and FreeBSD 4.8. It ought to work on any (*nix|*bsd) platform.

Man Pages

When you install cm, two man pages get installed with it. They are available here for convenience.
