    In a GUI environment.

    yum -y install rdesktop
    yum -y install tsclient

    The tsclient is a frontend that makes it easy to use rdesktop (and vncviewer). You should now see “Teminal Server Client” in the Internet tab in GUI.

    Thank you!!
    I was able to connect to a windows machine. If I go to full screen then I was unable to get back. Screen remain full in the windows machine. I tried restarting the remote windows machine, then the current(linux) machine screen frozen at the shutdown screen of the remote windows machine.

    Question is,
    how do I get back to the physical Linux machine from the remote full screen windows machine?

    Thank you.

  9. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both equally
    educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on
    the head. The issue is something that not enough people are
    speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy I found this in my search for something relating to this.
