Exclamation How do I automatically login using Rdesktop ?

Dear All,

I am using Rdesktop (wonderful program) to login to a Windows Terminal Server.

I plan to write a script to do auto login to that server. However even when I provide the username and password, the Win server
will still prompt me for the password

The command I use is :-

rdesktop -u username -p password winservername

Any ideas ? Thanks
