The remote desktop in redhat uses VNC, which is on port 5901 if its the first display, 5902 if its the second and so on.
port 3389 is used for Microsoft's RDP protocol
You need to use a VNC client (vncviewer) to connect to it, and also
using VNC does not allow you to control a local session like it does in the windows port, instead it'll open a new X session.
edit: lol didnt read your post entirely before i reply, please ignore this, and yea try using rdesktop directly.
