Best Windows to Linux RDP GUI Client


Titles says it all, getting by with Team-viewer but I can't install it as a startup service. I need a RDP GUI that can be a chkonfig service with Centos.
Centos Server is located on a VM, so if it needs to be restarted I would prefer a GUI in case staff uncomfortable with CLI need to access it.

the title does NOT say it all. it doesn't say please or thank you for a start.

RDP is a proprietary windows protocol, there are projects to emulate RDP on Linunx, but I think they're all dead.

Presuming you DON'T actually mean RDP, I'd strongly suggest using nx from nomachine.org for alterantive remote desktop solutions. It's very good, and doesn't need a startup service, as it's exectured on demand over ssh.

Yes. I'm referring to the application not the protocol. NX looks to be a very promising application, thank you for your suggestion!

Note that it is free for 2 users, just like windows is (i.e. Remote Desktop vs Terminal Services). Don't confuse the free version with FreeNX, which is an open source implementation of an unlimited service. It works well, but is not nearly as slick as the proper product.

Similar to NX is the company's products from 2X.com.
