       rdesktop - Remote Desktop Protocol client

       rdesktop [options] server[:port]

       rdesktop  is a client for Microsoft Windows NT Terminal Server, Windows 2000 Terminal Ser-
       vices, Windows XP Remote Desktop, and possibly other Terminal Services products.  rdesktop
       currently implements the RDP version 4 protocol.

       -u <username>
	      Username for authentication on the terminal server.

       -d <domain>
	      Domain for authentication.

       -s <shell>
	      Startup shell for the user - starts a specific application instead of Explorer.

       -c <directory>
	      The  initial  working directory for the user.  Often used in combination with -s to
	      set up a fixed login environment.

       -p <password>
	      The password to authenticate with.  Note that this may have no  effect  if  "Always
	      prompt  for password" is enabled on the server.  WARNING: if you specify a password
	      on the command line it may be visible to other users when they use tools	like  ps.
	      Use -p - to make rdesktop request a password at startup (from standard input).

       -n <hostname>
	      Client  hostname.   Normally  rdesktop  automatically  obtains  the hostname of the

       -k <layout>
	      Keyboard layout to emulate.  This  requires  a  corresponding  keymap  file  to  be
	      installed.   The	standard keymaps provided with rdesktop follow the RFC1766 naming
	      scheme: a language code followed by a country code if necessary - e.g.  en-us,  en-
	      gb, de, fr, sv, etc.  The default is en-us (a US keyboard).

       -g <geometry>
	      Desktop  geometry  (WxH).  If geometry is the special word "workarea", the geometry
	      will be fetched from the extended window manager hints property _NET_WORKAREA, from
	      the root window.

       -f     Enable  fullscreen mode.	This overrides the window manager and causes the rdesktop
	      window to fully cover the current screen.  Fullscreen mode can be  toggled  at  any
	      time using Ctrl-Alt-Enter.

       -b     Force  the  server to send screen updates as bitmaps rather than using higher-level
	      drawing operations.

       -e     Disable encryption.  This option is only needed (and will only work) if you have	a
	      French version of NT TSE.

       -m     Do  not  send  mouse  motion  events.   This saves bandwidth, although some Windows
	      applications may rely on receiving mouse motion.

       -C     Use private colourmap.  This will improve colour accuracy on an 8-bit display,  but
	      rdesktop will appear in false colour when not focused.

       -K     Do  not override window manager key bindings.  By default rdesktop attempts to grab
	      all keyboard input when it is in focus.

       -T <title>
	      Window title.

       -D     Hide window manager decorations, by using MWM hints.
