rdesktop goes to Windows S.B. Server 03 and no others

Hi my situation is that I am trying to connect to a computer on a LAN that is connected to a Windows Small Business Server 2003. When I use rdesktop no matter what I have tried I dont get the results that I need.
Here are my trials:

1. Port forwarding from router to comp. then rdesktop #.#.#.#port setup @ router)
Results: No good rdesktop gives me this (Autoselected keyboard map en-us) then it just hangs there

2. I tried just the i.p. address to ensure rdesktop was ok
Results: I get the login screen for Server

3. I tried rdesktop -n FDESK1 #.#.#.# (FDESK1 being the comps name) (I also tried fdesk1)
Results: I get the login screen for the Server still

Any Ideas?
