rdesktop -u lcwormley -d asurams -k ja -g 800×600 192.168.25.40
What is this command? Well for me the holy grail for any desktop computer operating system is to be able to connect back to a Windows box. As a system administrator i always have to be able to get to network devices or servers. Microsoft has always thwarted RDP clones by adding features that break them. I am happy to discover that Scientific Linux 6 has Rdesktop included by default and from the command line interface I can connect to a Windows box. Of course I am using the less secure RDP on my Windows 7 desktop, but there is still hope.
