    go to your server,open the terminal or the console and type the following commands:

    1. # vncpasswd
    - i hope you have created a user,this vncpasswd is given to the user
    2. #vncserver
    - this starts your vnc server and gives you a login id and no ex:" main:6 "

    3. now go to the client side which i suppose in your case is running winxp and i hope you
    have installed vncviewer,open it give ur username as "main:6" which u obtained in step 2
    and type the same passwd you gave in step 1.

    i hope this helps , cheers!

    Krdc and tsclient are two nice GUI front-ends that support rdesktop. Note that neither of them depends on the rdesktop package, so you may need to check that rdesktop is installed before using it.

    Currently, the GUI front-ends don't support the disk and printer sharing capabilities that were added to the latest version of rdekstop. To see how to enable those shares on the command line, look at this thread that's currently discussing the topic. Of course, there's also more details in the man page.
