This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

It works correctly for me with RHEL 6.5 versions of rdesktop/xfreerdp and MSWS 2008, however the server should be properly configured. Terminal services role have to be added:
Server Manager -> Actions -> Add roles -> Server roles -> Terminal Services -> ...

Does it fix your problem?
Comment 6 Ondrej Holy 2014-11-04 04:23:54 EST
Also the program has to be added in the list of RemoteApps to avoid access denied error (TS RemoteApp Manager -> Add RemoteApp).
Comment 7 Vera Budikova 2014-11-04 10:07:26 EST
Yes, your steps were helpful. It works correctly for me with RHEL 6.6 and Windows 2008 Server. I think it is not a bug.
Comment 8 Vera Budikova 2014-11-06 08:26:05 EST
It works correctly for Windows XP SP3 -> close.
