$rdekstop [hostname of the computer you want to connect to]
You can specify resolution and window name like this:
$rdesktop -g 1024x768 -T "Second Computer" 192.168.1.5
There are other options you can include such as username and password -- "-u somename" and "-p xxxxxx" for password. like this
$rdesktop -g 1024x768 -u "bob" -p "ilovelinux" -T "Second Computer" 192.168.1.5
If you get tired of entering that all in the command line every time, you can quickly create a desktop icon by doing this:
1. right click anywhere on the desktop
2. select "Create Launcher"
3. set it up like this:
Name: Second Computer
Command: $rdesktop -g 1024x768 -u "bob" -p "ilovelinux" -T "secondcomputer" 192.168.1.5
Comment: This isn't so hard!
4. you can change the Icon for it too. Then click OK and you'll have a desktop icon.
