When I use the remmina RDP client to connect to a Windows server computer, the keyboard mapping no longer works.
I have tried FreeRDP, same problem there.

Yes, that's absolutely normal: if you try to set your local keyboard to let's say Russian and you connect to a Japanese server, you'll still be typing Japanese. Both servers need to be set to the same keyboard...
That's why at a company I used to work at, we changed the corporate policy that all servers world-wide had to have QWERTY-US-International as their default settings!
