    That depends on what you mean.

    If you mean you want to start remote desktop using a command line, then the command is msdtc. you can type msdtc /? to get a list of commands.

    If you mean you want to connect to a command prompt on a remote computer, then Remote desktop doesn't do that.

    Yup, just enable telnet and you're good to go. Unless you're connecting to a linux machine then you're most likely to use SSH, for that you'll want PuTTY.
