Optimize rdesktop connections

By default rdesktop try to give you the best image quality which is fine on a LAN but inappropriate in other case. But using some options you can change this behaviour:

  • -x disable theming
  • -m disable mouse motion events
  • -z to enable compression
  • -r soundff disable sound
  • -P enable bitmap caching

So now i use the following command:

rdesktop -u username -f -m -z -x m -P -r soundff -0 myip
