Many of you who may be using Linux for a while might have been in a situation where you need to connect to your Linux Machine remotely from either a Windows XP machine or another Linux machine. I am starting a series in which I will write about different methods to do Remote Desktop with Linux machines.
Background: There are many ways to do remote desktop:
a) One method is where the desktop is shared.
Windows Equivalent: Windows XP Remote Desktop
b) Method in which each user can connect remotely with it’s own login.
Windows Equivalent: Windows Terminal Server
Assumption: I am assuming the following for this entire series:
Machine 1 (server) – Remote Linux machine (Debian installed) to which you would like to connect to.
IP of Machine 1: 192.168.0.1
Machine 2 (client) – A Windows XP machine from which you would connect remotely to Machine 1.
IP of Machine 2: 192.168.0.5
