Requires rdesktop 1.1.0 or higher, the Perl Tk libraries Tk800, and the VNC::DES perl module.

Simple Perl/Tk utility for Linux to work with multiple rdesktop and 
VNC servers.

Config file is .rdpconsole in home directory.
Config file commands are as follows:

Where geometry is specified as x-width by y-width: default 800x600;
server= can appear multiple times, once per server pre-set in the 
server list.  rdesktop_path= and vncviewer_path= are optional.  
Everything else is ignored.
