View Full Version : [ubuntu] How to connect to a remote desktop?

July 3rd, 2010, 04:26 AM
So lets say I want to let my brother do a remote desktop from Vista. First of all is it possible to go Vista -> Remote Desktop -> Ubuntu. So can Vista or Win7 remotely access my desktop and use my applications and what not? I see how I can allow them to do it, but how would they connect to me?

I would suggest to use vnc instead of remote desktop

on your comp you'll need to configure vncserver

on client computer - download and install realVNC program (enough to have VNC viewer)
