I know that you can enable font smoothing (ClearType) when connecting to a Windows machine using Windows Remote Desktop client, but can't find a corresponding option in Linux one (rdesktop).

Is it possible and, if yes, how can it be done?

Its not officially supported, but apparently there's a hidden option to get it working - with a command like

rdesktop -x 0x80 mywinserver

to use the lan default with cleartype

More details on the linked page including the commands for using cleartype with other defaults.
