I need to connect to a windows system through terminal services, and I want to know with which suse application can I do it.

rdesktop is easy and works just fine:

rdesktop -a16 -uadministrator -g1105x930

will get you a 16-bit color session on a Windows 2003 terminal server,
in a window measuring 1105x930 pixels, at IP address,
and prepopulate the user account field in the login dialog box with
"administrator". Drop the "-a16" switch when connecting to W2K
servers (they only do 8-bit color).

tsclient is a Gnome front end to rdesktop, but it has a lot of
prerequisites to install if you are a KDE user. It seems it is
supposed to look like the native Windows Remote Desktop Connection
software package.

You can also try the NX Client, downloadable from

We are using the NX Client a lot more these days. Very slick...
