4.87. rdesktop

Updated rdesktop packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The rdesktop packages provide a client for the Remote Desktop Server in Microsoft Windows. The rdesktop client uses the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) to remotely present a user's desktop.

Bug Fix

Prior to this update, the rdesktop client did not handle Windows Server 2008 licenses correctly. As a consequence, rdesktop was not able to connect to Terminal Services on the second connection with the following error message:
"disconnect: Internal licensing error"
This update modifies the underlying code to handle the Windows Server 2008 licenses properly, and rdesktop now connects to Terminal Services as expected.
Users of rdesktop are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
