Hello--high tech savvy user here but relatively new to linux and ubuntu. I'm using VCXSRV, version 220.127.116.11 (the latest version as of yesterday) to do remote login (remote desktop) from a Windows 7 laptop to a Ubuntu 12.04 workstation using a VPN connection using XDMCP. Connection is functional, the desktop appears, and I can see desktop icons of my ubuntu workstation remotely on my laptop.
In our office, a laptop (windows 7 home premium 64 bit) has been set up to use remote desktop connection so to establish a connection over the internet with a specific client of the network, when it's been located outside the office.
I recently purchased a Sony Vaio Pro 13 Ultrabook with Windows 8 and I have an issue when connected to the VPN at work where it freezes every few minutes while using Remote Desktop through Juniper. After about 10 seconds it displays a dialog about the connection being lost and it retries and the connection is restored.
This quick tutorial will show you how to easily connect to Ubuntu Lucid or Maverick via Windows Remote Desktop Connection. Since Remote Desktop is already installed on Windows, there’s no need to install additional tools to connect to Ubuntu.
I have a Windows server that I want to attach a 3rd party signed certificate for remote desktop connections. This is not a remote desktop services server, i.e. it is just remote desktop administration.
I have problem connecting to a Windows Server 2008 R2 with Remote Desktop Connection.
Say the server name is 'hello', domain name is 'example.com', and IP is 192.168.0.4. The server and clients reside in the same LAN.
Here's the scenario when connecting to 'hello' with Remote Desktop Connection from a Windows Vista:
Can't connect to 'hello' with account "example\administrator".
