There's not much to it. It's the remote desktop protocol that you use to
access Windows servers.  On Windows you open port 3387 or allow RDP in some
other way. (I do almost no Windows, so I don't remember exactly, but I
think on servers, there's something in the Windows firewall that you can

You then install freerdp. There are other things that will work, but this
is keeping it simple.

This site gives a brief explanation.


You should be able to google for something like use CentOS-6 (or 7) connect
to Windows RDP and find various tutorials.
