rdesktop is an open source client for Microsoft's RDP protocol. It is known to work with Windows versions ranging from NT 4 Terminal Server to Windows 2012 R2 RDS. rdesktop currently has implemented the RDP version 4 and 5 protocols.

Usage of this:

rdesktop IP

Note that many systems have Network level authentication enabled, which can cause rdesktop to fail. To remediate this, we can use xfreerdp for this:

xfreerdp /u:”DOMAIN\USER” /p:”Pass” /v:IP
