Hi All !
So my first message on this forum will be to reply this quite old post.
This was also a problem for me, since I use the -n parameter to rdesktop.
Windows need a netbios client host name to "identify" the remote desktop client.
So Try :
rdesktop <ip_address_of_machine> -n <your_wished_netbios_Id>
rdesktop 192.168.0.100 -n foobar
As the error message isn't that explicit, there may be other problems generating the same error message (Broken pipe ...)
EDIT : As expected, I encounter the same error message on another computer but the "-n" solution doesn't work...
Hope this will help.
