Having reconsidered the characteristics and tried almost all RDP-clients on Linux, I can say with confidence that FreeRDP is the best. At what the best without use of any superstructures of type Remmina. I, as a user, do not like it when the remote desktop opens in a window with scrollbars and completely incomprehensible resolution. Wide fields of windows eat up some space on which the remote desktop could turn. Some clients can not work with a common clipboard, which is also inconvenient. Having tested and fairly tested different clients, I settled on FreeRDP. You can install it in Ubuntu using the command apt-get install freerdp-x11. It starts simply. In the console we type xfreerdp -k en-us -T "Computer name" -a 32 -x l -z -u darkeye -g 1366x680 --sec rdp --plugin cliprdr and by entering the password to connect to the desktop of the remote windows. As you can see, there is nothing complicated in this.

Let's look at each option of the command:

-k en-us   keyboard - Select a language keyboard layout on the remote machine

-T "Computer name" Here everything is clear it's just the name of the connection

-a 32     monitor color depth 8, 15, 16, 24, 32 bit

-x l   channel l (lan) performance. The most productive and includes all the effects and desktop background image

-z     enable compression inside the encrypted channel RDP

-u darkeye login on the remote machine

-g 1366x680 necessary screen resolution. 

--sec rdp     authorization method: RDP, TSL или NLA

--plugin cliprdp   clipboard synchronization. Supports plain text, Unicode text, HTML and images ip-remote machine address

As a result of executing the command, we connect to the desktop of the remote computer.

Actually why did I need an RDP client? Usually, I connect remotely to Unix machines using the ssh protocol and I'm not interested in connecting to windows at all. But. At me windows costs a guest system in Virtualbox and on it are installed some, very much to me necessary, applications. And recently, Oracle announced the release of Virtualbox 5, which, along with other innovations, was the launch of a virtual machine in the background.

Before that, the virtual machine could run on my laptop only with a resolution of 1024x768, which was very uncomfortable for me. Separately, I want to note that in order to connect to windows, you must set a password for your account on it and give permission for remote access by putting the necessary checkboxes in the system properties. You also need to tick the & quot; enable remote access server & quot; In the settings of the virtual machine.

Now I can run the virtual machine in the background and connect to it, having received the desktop I need permission. By the way, you can find out the ip-address of the machine running in the background by running the command in the console VBoxManage guestproperty enumerate {`VBoxManage list runningvms | awk -F"{" '{print$2}'` | grep \IP | awk -F"," '{print$2}' | awk  '{print$2}'

I want to note that this command works only for virtual windows-machines. If you use it, for example, for OpenIndiana, you will only see the ip address of the virtual host adapter. But still, it's best to connect to a virtual machine using the address

By the way, this is one of the methods to make the virtualbox resolution in the virtual machine windows more than 1024x768. When I enabled a virtual machine with Windows 7 in VirtualBox mode in the "Run in background mode with interface" and connected to it using freerdp with the specified resolution of 1366x680, the system remembered this resolution and later, even with a normal start-up with the built-in interface, was loaded with this resolution. That is, she began to see a resolution greater than 1024x768.

Good luck.
