How to use rdesktop_se
rdesktop_se is an RDP client. rdesktop_se differs from the vanilla rdesktop because it has some custom features to help usability when launching the application.

1. customisation #1 – host name handling
By default the application will present a dialog box which asks the user for Windows host or IP address to connect to.
Alternatively you can specify a command line for rdesktop in the usual way by editing the automatically-created application launcher in BEM web. If a host name is specififed in the command line parameters the dialog is not shown.
You can also add additional command line parameters to the launcher, e.g.
winsvr.test.local -f
…will tell rdesktop to connect to the Windows host winsvr.test.local, and to run the remote session fullscreen.

2. customisation #2 – logged in user name handling
By default rdesktop_se will grab the Windows user name for the rdesktop session from the logged in user.
This can be overridden by specifying a user name in the command line parameters.

Known Issues
– To ensure rdesktop can connect to Windows RDP hosts, you must disable the NLA (“Network Level Authentication”) requirement on the Windows host as follows:
Open control panel and go to system->remote settings. On the remote tab, ensure the “Allow connections only from computers running remote desktop with Network Level Authentication (recommended)” checkbox is unticked.
