Hi All,

I'm using Windows 7 and want to connect to RHEL 5.5 x64 just like in this article: http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/RHEL-4-Manual/desktop-guide/ch-ddg-remote-desktop.html

how and where to enable the remote desktop application feature ?

the goal is that the Windows User can have access into it using mstsc.exe or terminal server client (Remote Desktop Client) which is already installed in all of the Windows workstation.

Thanks.

You can install VNC on the redhat system.
one setup using a browser you can go to http;//redhat:5800 or download theVNC viewer from realvnc or tightvnc it's totally up-to-you which you use.

For browser, you need to have a SUN/Oracle JRE installed www.java.com.

thanks for the quick reply Arnold,

when reading this line "While vncviewer is primarily for connecting to a Linux desktop, Terminal Server Client can be used to access both Windows and Linux desktops." i was under the impression that installing the  Terminal Server Client is the best one since it can be used for both system (Windows and Linux).

ok, so setting up VNC server is the way to go here ?

You can't connect Windows 7 to a Linux system using the termserv client.  You can connect FROM linux to a windows termserv.

As arnold said, to connect use vnc.  You can get the basic version free and use to connect to a linux vnc session.

The article is based on using Red Hat to do the connections; using vncviewer to connect to another linux session and terminal server client to connect to windows.  Not from windows to linux.

run yum install vnc.
Not sure whethe yum install tightvnc is an option.
The other option is to use an X-windows with putty/ssh client and configure the  X11 display redirect for the ssh connection.

cygwin might be an option to explore www.cygwin.com
What it will do is that once you establish an SSH connection from the windows 7 to the linux system with the X11 tunnel, you can then run the graphic commands on the linux and it will be redirected back through the SSH connection.
When in the ssh session on the linux, echo $DISPLAY to make sure it is set.
