Unhappy Connecting remotely to a linux system from a windows system


I am new to linux and don't know much about the OS.

I have enabled linux remote desktop and I have set up the network.
But for some reason my windows system does not want to connect to the Linux system.

I was just wondering how to fix the problem and if it may have to do with the network configuration being wrong or what

Thanks

Helps if you say HOW you're trying to connect to it... sharing from a linux machine is most likely using vnc, so you'll need to use a vnc client.

vnc is a (number of) visual remote control application, that works just fine on windows too.. it's not a linux program. see google for more details about it.
