       xfreerdp - FreeRDP X11 client


       xfreerdp [options] server[:port] [[options] server[:port] ...]


       xfreerdp is an X11 Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) client which is part of the FreeRDP
       project. An RDP server is built-in to many editions of Windows. Alternative servers
       included xrdp and VRDP (VirtualBox).


           Attach to the admin console of the server.

       -a bpp
           Sets the color depth for the connection to bpp bits per pixel. Valid values are 8, 15,
           16, 24 and 32. The default value is the color depth of the FreeRDP-window.

       -c dir
           Sets the working-dir to dir. This parameter is only used when an AlternateShell (-s
           shell) is requested.  dir should contain the executable file specified in the

           Removes the windows decorations.

       -d domain
           Set the domain used in authentication to domain.

           start in full screen mode. This mode can always be en- and disabled using

       -T text
           Sets the window title to text.

       -g geometry
           Sets the size of the FreeRDP window (and of the remote desktop, when establishing a
           new connection).  geometry can have one of the following forms:

           •   WxH - in this case the resulting window will be of WxH pixels.

           •   P% - in this case the resulting window will be P% of your screen.

           •   The special keyword workarea - in this case the resulting window will be of the
               same size as your workarea.

           Print help.

       -k id
           Sets the keyboard-layout-id to id.

           Do not interfere with window manager bindings (don't grab keyboard).

       -n hostname
           Set the reported client hostname to hostname. Default is to automatically detect the

           Play audio on the console instead of redirecting to the client.

       -p password
           Password used in authentication.

       -s shell
           Sets the startup-shell to shell. This parameter should contain a complete path to the
           alternate shell. If the alternete shell requires a different working directory use -c

       -t port
           Connect to port, instead of the default 3389.

       -u username
           Username used in authentication.

       -x flag
           Set the experience performance flags.  flag can be one of:

           •   m - (modem): Equivalent to 15.

           •   b - (broadband): Equivalent to 1.

           •   l - (lan): Equivalent to 0.

           •   num - A hexadecimal number that represents a bit-mask, were numbers mean the
               following [1]:

               •   1: Disable desktop wallpaper.

               •   2: Disable full-window drag (only the window outline is displayed when the
                   window is moved).

               •   4: Disable menu animations.

               •   8: Disable user interface themes.

               •   100: Enable Desktop Composition.

       -X xid
           embed xfreerdp into window with xid.

           Enable compression.

           initialize a RemoteApp connection. This implies -g workarea.

           Skips authentication. This is useful e.g. for the current FreeRDP server that doesn't
           yet support server-side authentication.

           Only authenticates. This is useful to test your credentials (username and password).
           Returns status code 0 if the client can connect. Requires a username, password and
           connection host at the command line.

           Disable bitmap cache.

       --ext extname
           load extension extname

           Disables fast-path. Use slow-path packets instead, which have larger headers. It might
           be good for debugging certain issues when you suspect it might be linked to the
           parsing of one of the two header types.

           Prompts for unspecified arguments -u username, -p password, -d domain and connection
           host. This is useful to hide arguments from ps. Also useful for scripts that will feed

           Disable full window drag.

       --gdi backend

           force NTLM protocol version to be version, which can be one of 1 or 2.

       --sec proto
           force protocol security.  proto can be one of rdp, tls or nla.

           Use salted checksums with Standard RDP encryption.
