Hello, you should run
Code:
rdesktop --help
and that will give you a list of all the possible arguments you can run. But I'll give you a couple examples of basic remote desktop....

This will give you a window that is not quite full screen...
Code:
rdesktop -a 24 -g 93% 192.168.0.130
This next will will give you a full screen..You can use Alt+Enter (I think? I can't remember and don't have a win machine to test) to escape full screen.
Code:
rdesktop -a 24 -f 192.168.0.130
The -a 24 uses 24 bit colour depth...Gives you a little better picture than not using it. There are many more options as you will see when you run --help, like pass the remote sound to your local machine, export shares, etc....But this will get you going for accessing your computer.
Hope this helps.
Thanks

Hello, Sounds like rdesktop is not installed by default and you'll need to install it??

You can check if its installed with this command..
Code:
rpm -qa rdesktop
If there is no output or it says its not installed, You should be able to install it with YUM? (I'm not entirely familiar with Fedora and getting apps, "yum install rdesktop"????) Anyway, give that a shot.
Thanks

I DO NOT want to be perceived as hijacking the OP's thread, but following these instructions, how would one correct it when the following is received:

Quote:
bob@bob-laptop:~$ rdesktop -a 24 -g 93% 192.168.2.5
Autoselected keyboard map en-gb
ERROR: connect: Connection refused
Thanks

Bob

If you are trying to connect to an XP machine, you have to enable "remote access". (Again sorry, I don't have an XP machine readily available to look). But you right click on "My Computer" and select properties. And I believe there is a "Remote" tab". And then enable it and you might have to put users in there as well to have access. Please give that a try, and if need be, I will get to an XP machine and give better directions.
Thanks
