I am trying to connect to my laptop using tsclient in ubuntu and UltraVNC in XP.

I open tsclient in linux, enter the laptop IP and protocol = RDP, hit connect and it opens the windows logon, I can connect and login, but its not using UltraVNC (its running on the XP), I know this because I close UltraVNC from the remote desktop and the connection still works so it seems its using the windows built in remote desktop.

How can I connect to UltraVNC instead of XP default remote desktop?

I want to do this because I read UltraVNC works better for screen refreshs, my currently remote desktop connection works really bad for screen refreshs.

tsclient is for Remote Desktop Protocol, you should use Remote Desktop Viewer (vinagre) for vnc protocol.
