My Laptop (Intel Core 2 Duo T7200) is running FC6,  and
rdesktop 1.5.0-2.fc6

I have a small test machine (K6-2 500) running and
rdesktop 1.5.0-2.fc7

My main server (AMD Athlon XP 2600+) is running and

All 3 fail in the same fashion.

I have 2 Home and 1 Pro.  The Pro version runs in a VMWare session on my
laptop.  The 2 Home versions are on their own computers.  I have used
Remote Assistance from Home to Home and from Home to Pro (I have
connected to a Home machine from Pro given the appropriate RAIncident
.xml file).  I was hoping to be able to connect to a Home machine via
rdesktop from Linux.  I guess I can live with having to use a Windows
machine to help my Mom.  But, that just isn't right.  Maybe I should
just install VNC on her computer.  That will work (has worked in the
past).  But, now she has this new computer, and we're reinstalling
everything, practically from scratch, for her.
