Seems to be a problem with SSL certs, since rdesktop works fine for me.

there is no issue with ssl certs, because earlier versions of rdesktop works good

Have the same Problems since update to 1.8.2 on Manjaro 64bit.
Trying W2008R2 TS end up in the CredSSP Error.
W2K3 TS Server working fine.

downgrade to 1.8.1 fixed it also for me.
There's definate something with the 1.8.2 release.

Same with 1.8.3 and Windows Server 2008 R2 ServicePack 1, also the same problem with (x)freerdp, switched to Remmina Remote Desktop Client (works excellent).
