Which 'Terminal Services' client are you looking for?

Under Linux platforms, the only one supported is VNC Viewer and it's usually found under 'Applications --> Accessories'.

I am looking for the client as seen here:

http://www.centos.org/docs/4/html/rhd-dg-en-4/s1-ddg-remote-desktop-tsclient.html

it allows for connection to a variety of host servers, Windows Terminal Servers, RDP, etc... I had it in Ubuntu, and it looked just like what is at the link above.  I already have VNC installed but that is not what I am looking for. Thanks!
