XFreeRDP vs Rdesktop

Seems like recent Windows versions has enabled some security options which Rdesktop can’t handle.


ERROR: CredSSP: Initialize failed, do you have correct kerberos tgt initialized ?
Failed to connect, CredSSP required by server.

The solution is to use XFreeRDP, but the syntax of the arguments parameters are quite uncommon… Example:


% xfreerdp /u:username@domain.tld /p:password /w:1366 /h:768 /v:192.0.2.1
connected to 192.0.2.1:3389
