My TS connections to a Win 2008 TS Server always ended up with 16 bit color depth even if 24 bits was configured in Terminal Server Client.
Googling a little for examples of how to use rdesktop directly, I was able to connect in 24 bits depth to my server.

The correct argument to pass to rdesktop is "-a 32" but rdesktop is launched with "-a 24".
This is due to an error in the rdesktop man page which tell to use 24.

    I found the answer myself. When connecting to a windows XP desktop, I had to use 24 bits.
    Win 2008 and probably Vista need a 32 bit connection and do not support 24bit depth.

    So please, could you add a 32 bit option ?

    Thanks
