First, install rdesktop if you don’t already have it. rdesktop is a client software for RDP (remote desktop protocol) which is used in various microsoft OS’s.
$ sudo apt-get install rdesktop
Open a terminal and input
$ rdesktop -f -a 16 <ip/domain name>
where -f is for full screen mode and -a is the connection color depth. -a 16 means 16 bits color depth will be used for this connection. These are the two option I used. Other two useful options are -u <username> and -p <password>.
Press Ctrl-Alt-Enter to switch between full screen and window mode.
