I'm not using the mstsc client because I wanted to use VNC from the =
beginning for my thesis, then I wanted it to be able to open =
multisessions, so I saw that for that I definitely needed somehow RDP. =
Then I decided to mix them, and then I wanted to use rdesktop which is =
open source code and uses RDP, but it just works on linux!.
Thanks a lot for your insight! ciao

Sounds interesting, but I must ask; why not connect with mstsc from
Win2k? Why do you need to go from w2k/vnc --> linux/rdp --> terminal

I believe your RedHat X Server fails to handle both vnc server and rdp
client sessions concurrently. Or maybe there is too much going on with
the vnc session. =20
If w2k/vnc -> linux works fine by itself and redhat/rdp -> ts works
fine as well, then it could be that one session takes precedence.
Just a thought. =20
