How to remote desktop to a Windows Vista machine from a Redhat machine?

I can find this article about remote desktop in Vista, but none that tells me how to remotely control my Vista machine from my Redhat machine.

"You can use tsclient (Terminal Server Client) which comes installed under Applications -> Internet -> Terminal Server Client. It looks very similar to Remote Desktop on Windows.

Set the protocol as RDPv5 and away you go!

See the Red Hat article on Connecting Using Terminal Server Client."

xrdp has both a client and a server version. Install xrdp client, and then use it to connect to the Windows Vista terminal server.
