    Substitute with your windows box ip address. With windows firewall disabled, it must reply pings and accept the telnet connection (it will be automatically closed, but accepted at start).

    If neither ping or telnet give a successful reply, paste results here, but probably both systems aren't correctly connected to the LAN or misspelled address, assuming that you enabled terminal server service correctly, otherwise review the full tutorial.

    Well dont worry about ping, it is working too, under unix it wont stop untill you press "Ctrl + C".

    If telnet was able to connect, and gave you the message "Connected to" then rdesktop should work too, you should try again with the rdesktop command.

    Otherwise, did you set password to at least one user, and added that user to the "remote desktop" group?

    If rdesktop command, still fails, please post the error message, because if telnet is connecting, the error cannot be "connection refused".

    @ riqued; you can stop the ping with ctrl c and it seems you didnt have enabled 'remote desktop' on your windows machine.

    the easiest way to do this is like this:

    -right click 'my computer'
    -tab 'remote'
    -mark the option 'Allow users to connect remotely to this computer

    now from your ydl you can use remote desktop to login to you windows machine.

    I have more easier resolution for all of your issues, just use logmein for remote desktops
