Hi All,

Is there an application that I can install on my Fedora box that will allow people to login to a gnome session via the mstsc app in windows?

I must use mstsc, VNC or others are not an option  unfortunately.

    You should use a RDP Server for Linux. I'd install xrdp.

    On the another thought - You can add Listen 3389 to sshd_config and use this for SSH connections to not alter infrastructure
