How to Connect Windows machine with RDP from CentOS 7 / RHEL 7 Console

Install freerdp on CentOS 7 / RHEL 7

Let’s first install Desktop environment related packages using the beneath yum command. If we don’t install these packages then xfreerdp command will not work from command line

[root@dkengine2 ~]# yum install "@X Window System" xorg-x11-xauth xorg-x11-fonts-* xorg-x11-utils –y
[root@dkengine2 ~]# yum install freerdp -y

Once the freerdp is installed successfully then we have ‘xfreerdp’ command through we can connect to windows machine.  Disconnect ssh session of your server and connect it again with ‘-X’ option. Example is shown below
