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.

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 ?
