I'm reading conflicting information about whether rdesktop supports 24-bit color?

I get the following message when I connect:
WARNING: Remote desktop does not support colour depth 24; falling back to 16

Is that a configuration problem on the rdesktop end, or on the remote Windows machine's end? Or does it just not work?


Answer: It was on the remote machine's end. Supposedly there is a configuration panel where I could have adjusted this setting, but it wasn't where everyone said. I edited colordepth in the registry to value 4.
