Description From cendio 2013-06-14 14:24:32
rdesktop builds the target SPN using servername argument. If an ip adress is
passed as server name a corresponding target SPN will be constructed
TERMSRV/<ipaddress> which is not a valid SPN.

We should add some IP detection of servername argument and make an reverse
lookup for a better chance of correct SPN format providing a better end user
experience.

For now, CredSSP+kerberos does not work if rdesktop connects to ip address.

rdesktop (and associated tools) is being removed from the ThinLinc product.
