mstsc /v:<name of the computer you want to connect to> /f

HarkinsCommented:
It can be computer name or IP address if the two computers are on the same network.

Is the computer on the same network as the one you are connecting from?

Please can I ask if you are on the same network of the computer you wish to connect to?

If not then you are probly most unlikely to connect to it unless you have a third party client installed such as log me in.

If you are on the same network then you will require there computer to allow incoming RDP requests.

If not you can enable it using network registry or connecting to the Computer Management console of that computer.

Then i would suggest you installing a third party client such as logmein.

This would then enable you to control it.

Can you expand the scenario a little tcs224694? Exactly what are you trying to achieve?

Are they two completely separate networks? Are you able to ping the other machine? Do you have VPN access to the other network? Etc etc...

>If we are in same network but different os then?
The main difference between different os is that Windows supports RDP, while Linux mostly use XDMCP.
You have to use a common protocol.

You may go for
rdesktop for Linux -> Windows connections;
Xming or Cygwin/X for Windows->Linux connections;
VNC for any ->any connections
