How to change the screen resolution?
I type the command
rdesktop "server ip"
but the screen does not appear large.
I like using
rdesktop -g 90% servername, which will use set the size of the remote desktop to 90% of the size of your local screen, which works quite well regardless of resolution.. :)
If you want to open the screen at a specific resolution, for example 1280×1024 resolution, add the -g flag:
rdesktop -g 1280x1024 [machine]
rdesktop -f gives you a full screen experience as well.
I found the answer to my question.
-r disk:mydisk=/home/soma: share your home directory with the remote machine
rdesktop 192.168.1.23 -k de -g 1500x1150 -r disk:mydisk=/home/soma
I'd suggest that you consider a graphical tool such as Remmina (used to be called GRDC) : http://remmina.sourceforge.net/, which is available in the repositories.
sudo apt-get install remmina remmina-plugin-rdp remmina-plugin-vnc
It features easy to use drop downs and sliders for remote screen resolution, supporting multiple monitors and more.
It also supports VNC and SSH tunnelling, making it a one-stop-shop for all your most likely remote desktop connection needs. Finally, a handy gnome-panel applet makes connecting to your remote desktops a simple point and click experience.

I think Ctrl + Alt + KP+ also cycles through some available resolutions.
