I need to be able to work from home (Ubuntu 11.04) on a computer at work (Windows XP), so I thought I could simply use rdesktop and enter the proper credentials, but it seems it's a little more complicated than I thought. Hence the following questions:
What does the "host" computer need? What will the command line call to rdesktop look like? How can I make this secure (using ssh?) ? Where can I find troubleshooting information about this procedure?
I initially assumed this would be easy as cake but I've been having trouble and I can't seem to find any good tutorial about how to do this..
$ rdesktop hostIPAddress ERROR: 126.96.36.199: unable to connect
