SSH is what you would want I would think. http://pigtail.net/LRP/printsrv/cygwin-sshd.html

It has to be native to a fresh install of windows.

I assume you aren't looking for the command line command to OPEN the RDP client?
MSTSC?

No... I was wondering if MSTSC had a "command prompt" version, as opposed to a GUI version

What is pushing you to a command line interface?  You can access the command prompt from within the RDP session.  You can even have that open automatically so that is all that you see when you connect.  At that point the only thing that RDP would be doing is connecting you to cmd.exe running on the remote server through port 3389.

No, there is nothing built in.  You can use third party tools (some are downloadable from Microsoft - like PSEXEC) that create such an instance, but other than telnet, no.  

Depending on what you want to do though, many commands support specifying a computer name - for example, you can restart services with the SC command from one system to another provided you are authenticated with the other server with a user with appropriate access.
