Remmina : Remote Connection via RDP, VNC, SSH, XDMCP or SFTP

November 23rd, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

If you need to connect to both Windows and Linux machines remotely,  Remmina is what you need. It is an application that can remotely connect to server using VNC, SSH, XDMCP, SFTP and RDP protocols.

So that you can connect to a Windows machine using the default RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) protocol without installing a VNC server.

In the screenshot below I setup a Windows RDP and a VNC connection to 192.168.0.102.

There are plenty of options. Here’s a screenshot of Remote Desktop Preferences for the RDP client.
