I'm trying to connect to windows-hosted machines through the remote desktop protocol. Using neither rdesktop on mandriva linux nor the standard tool on windows xp or vista doesn't bring any results.
rdesktop says "connection reset by peer" (although it does open a window), and the MS tool just waits a couple of seconds and does nothing - I presume the cause is the same. The amount of time waited seems to correlate to the timeout set in the GUI. The type of the guest doesn't seem to matter - I've tried DOS, windows 98se, windows 2003, XP, Vista and ubuntu server and ubuntu desktop.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance,
