Hello everyone,

I am trying to access a desktop environment in win Xp machine from my Linux machine (as I got some task to do with Ms Exel with its macros, and these fail to run on Open Office...).

My approach to use rdesktop fails at the very beginning:

~$ rdesktop 192.168.2.139
Autoselected keyboard map en-us
ERROR: connect: Connection refused

Can anyone see what is wrong here (or can forward me to a similar issue somewhere in forums)? :confused:

The firewall on the win machine is disabled, so that should not be an issue.

all the best with my waiting macros,
