nothing to do with networking itself. moved to linux - newbie.

as for the question... rdesktop is a windows rdp client. It works by implementing a reverse engineered API for RDP. What else did you want to know about it?

that really makes no sense other than what i already said... it uses an api for the protocol. have you looked at the source code?
