You can use vino as your remote desktop application, see here:

Just so I understand are you looking to set up a remote desktop like connection to a Linux desktop? Or do you want to connect a Linux machine to a Windows Machine that has remote desktop enabled?

I guess I should have been clearer. I would like to RDP from ubuntu to a windows box and vice versa, is that possible?

Yes, it's possible. There's an application called 'Terminal Server Client' and it's already installed - 'Applications -> Internet-> Terminal Server Client'
