You can’t, put simply – there’s no SSL certificate support, as far as I know.  RDP traffic is already encrypted, so SSL certificates are basically a bit pointless.  Although don’t tell the salesman that.

Subject: [rdesktop-users] rdesktop 1.6 - help connecting to x509 cert win2003 server (help manager's threatening to uninstall Linux desktops)

 

Hi.

First of all I have to say that rdesktop is generally really good - the fact that you can paste the password is awesome.

However we have a few clients  servers that have a x509 ssl cert and am unable to connect to these servers with rdesktop - we have to use Windows remote desktop client....

This is bad as our office manager is threatening to install Windows on all our desktops (as we are unable to connect to some clients servers)

(obviously I will leave if the threat is carried out ....)

Does anyone have any ideas how to connect, i get the following message

morgan@myhost ~]$ rdesktop pcwebservices.co.uk
ERROR: recv: Connection reset by peer


regards

Does
