I've installed Gentoo 2004.2 for the first time. Help me pls to configure my rdesktop client.

To configure my network I typed:
1) ifconfig eth0 {$IP} broadcast {$BRCT} netmask {$NETMSK} up
2) route add default gw {$GATEWAY}
3) added my DNS server to /etc/resolv.conf

So I configured my network. Futher I downloaded rdesktop client (1.3.1)
and compiled:

1) ./configure
2) make
3) make install ( by default to /usr/local/bin)

Now, when I type:
"rdesktop -u user -f {$IP} "
in my Terminal :

Xlib: connectiom to "0.0: refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified


Where I have mistake? What I should to configure else?
1)I sure that my Terminal server works on Windows 2003 platform (I've checked it via other computers)
2)I sure that I configured the netwotk on gentoo platform properly:
(pings, DNS works, Mozilla gives connect to Internet)

Thanks

Thanks for advice. I've installed it, but have the same error:

Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified


Could give me another advice

when you try to rdesktop and you get an error from the server like that make sure you're a regular user on your gentoo system and not root.

Rule out the server as being the problem first by testing rdesktop against a different server. If you've not got another terminal server just enable the remote desktop on a windows xp pro PC.

Which X server are you running?
