#apt-get install rdesktop

That should get a RDP client up for you.

Oh yea .. must be installed to a HDD for this to work.

rdesktop is already included in DSL. The problem is that there is no menu choice for it in Fluxbox for DSL version 0.5

To use, do the following:

Choose XShells->Rxvt from the menu, or click on the Xterminal icon if you have already run the "Enhance" script.

From the prompt, type:

rdesktop servername

where servername is the name of your Windows RDP server. If you want full-screen RDP client, then try:

rdesktop -f servername

There are lots of other options. To list them all, just type:


at the prompt.
