Accessing Windows Desktop from linux

It's easy to access window destop from linux using the command rdesktop command. The windows machine may be in our LAN or machine connected in internet. If the linux didn't have rdesktop installed , you can download rdesktop and install it.
Example for rdesktop:
If you want to connect the remote desktop of windows machine in LAN with IP address 192.168.0.122 then giving the following command :

rdesktop 192.168.0.122

Now you are promted for username and password,provide it and accesss the widows desktop.
The windows machine in WAN can be also accessed in same way,by giving hostname or IP(public) Address of the machine.
Note:The remote desktop is accessed thorugh port 3389 . so we must allow outgoing connections from the port 3389 in firewall.
