thanks for the response, I will try that out on return from my holiday.

Would have liked to have come to the meeting last night, but instead I was watching the Red Arrows over Torquay harbour...im no plane spotter, but it was bloody fantastic!

Probably ssh's compression is adding to latency. Try turning it off.

I'd suggest you use ssh port forwarding. I think terminal server uses
port 3307.

so :

ssh -L 3307:windowsPC:3307 aUser at work.linux.box

rdesktop localhost

Should work. Shame you didn't come to the meeting tonight. I've found the
performance of vnc or remote desktop to be entirely acceptable when tunneled
through ssh over my ADSL line... if you don't have that much bandwidth look at
NX, which i've seen working really well through e.g. 128kb ISDN etc.
