I think RDP is just using T.126 with some extra extensions.
As far as I recall it is using the old legacy encoding and not ASN PER.

I did find some documentation about this a long time ago but never had
any traces/nor real interest in implementing it.

It should be possible to find the T.126 family as well as the old
legacy encoding through google.
(the old legacy encoding means the dissector has to be written by hand
since asn2wrs can not be used)
