I needed to connect to a Microsoft Windows 10 system using the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) from a CentOS 7 system. I've used rdesktop software to control a Windows system from a Linux system in the past and I thought there might be an rdesktop package available for CentOS, but when I tried to install one with yum, I found that none was available.
# yum install rdesktop Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, langpacks Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile * base: centos.sonn.com * epel: archive.linux.duke.edu * extras: centos.vwtonline.net * updates: centos.firehosted.com No package rdesktop available. Error: Nothing to do #
But I found that Vinagre, was already available on the system. Vinagre is a Virtual Network Computing (VNC), Secure Shell (SSH), Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) and Simple Protocol for Independent Computing Environments (SPICE) client for the GNOME desktop environment.
