Uh - maybe stating the way-too-obvious here, but 8 bits per pixel actually amounts to 256 colors ...

In my humble opinion correctly answered in http:#a33502393
Setting the properties of the RDP protocol in the above dialog to 8 bits per pixel will restrict RDP connections to the server to said 256 colors.
The desktop looks of course horrible, but it works.
