How do I remote control ubuntu from Windows XP
Posted on 2009-02-17
I've got Ubuntu installed as a virtual machine on a windows 2003 server using VMWare desktop in a network in bridged mode, so it takes on a local IP directly from the DHCP on the router.
I access another Windows XP virtual machine using mstsc.exe from my main windows xp computer and it works easily just connecting to it by it's name and then I can remotely control the desktop of that virtual machine.
I want to do the same with the Ubuntu 8.1 virtual machine but don't yet have any experience with Ubuntu. What do I have to do within Ubuntu to enable this and what do I have to use on my Windows machine to be able to connect to Ubuntu? Can I use mstsc?
