CentOS 7.x remote desktop or freerdp

Till CentOS 6.x rdesktop command was available to connect to Windows machines. For CentOS 7.x use:

  1. yum -y install freerdp
  2. xfreerdp <server-ip-or-fqdn>


Refer:


xfreerdp fullscreen

Use 'Ctrl+Alt+Enter' to shift from fullscreen mode to normal and then back to fullscreen. This might work better if initial connection is made using '-f' fullscreen option.


xfreerdp connection issue

xfreerdp might fail connection with error:

   SSL_read: Failure in SSL library (protocol error?)
   Authentication failure, check credentials.
   If credentials are valid, the NTLMSSP implementation may be to blame.   

even when username, password, domain, etc. are correct. You can validate the username, password, etc. from a windows machine to be extra sure. If all other details are correct then problem might be with order of arguments as shown below:

   [saurabh@barjatiyarklp ~]$ xfreerdp windows-server -d domain1 -u saurabh
   connected to windows-server:3389
   Password: 
   SSL_read: Failure in SSL library (protocol error?)
   Authentication failure, check credentials.
   If credentials are valid, the NTLMSSP implementation may be to blame.
   [saurabh@barjatiyarklp ~]$ xfreerdp  -d domain1 -u saurabh windows-server
   connected to windows-server:3389
   Password:    

Please note that in the working version, hostname 'windows-server' was given after all other parameters.
