Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I've tried current versions of rdesktop (1.6.0) and gnome-rdp (0.2.3). Still no 6.0 support. It's really frustrating because I use linux for everything at home and it can't do standard secure RDP over TLS. Crock of balls.
May try the wine approach but i superhate the idea.
I tried with 1.0.1-0ubuntu8. But that's a good idea, I should try a tarball from winhq for the 1.2 branch. Or maybe something like CrossOver if I can find my license. Thanks for kicking me in the thinking butt.
There is a Java client that I think will do it. But it's not open source and a bit expensive. I guess it will be easier to use than running Windows in a virtual machine or something. I tried it many years ago, but never tried RDP 6. But I looked on the feature list, and they say it supports RDP 6. You can download an evaluation and test if it suits your needs.
Still no solution for this, it seems. Just one of those occasions where Windows does it better.
hey Invisible, i realize this is way outdated by now, but if you're still looking (and in case anyone else is interested) try connecting to the gateway server directly, then after you're in the server use the windows rdp client to connect to the machine on the network.
i came across the same issue and was able to get through using this 2-step process, but requires that you have athorization on the gateway server.
Hope this helps. Ps, i'm on opensuse 11, using KDE Remote Desktop Client but it should work for whichever rdp client you're using.
@melquiades999: What gateway server are you talking about?
In other news, Microsoft made RDP specifications openly available via the MSDN library. I'm not sure how much of the protocol is documented, but I'm thinking that open source tools should be able to leverage the more advanced (read: already several years old) functions of RDP.
Not that I've looked in a very long time, however. I use VNC for everything now.
