Unhappy Remote desktop access


I have SLES(SUSE Linux Enterprise Server) 11 and I wanna remote desktop access of Windows 7.
I tried VNC,but not working.
Also 'rdesktop' function not in SLES(SUSE Linux Enterprise Server) 11, then how can I access Windows 7 from SLES(SUSE Linux Enterprise Server) 11 ?

Do you want to access a Windows machine from your Linux machine, or do you want to access your Linux machine from a Windows machine?

It sounds like the former, in which case just run "rdesktop IP", where IP is the IP address of your Windows system running a remote desktop server.

assuming your windows machine is setup with some kind of server to enable the access, then you might like remmina, which supports several different kind of remote access type protocols through a series of plugins.

vnc and clients using the vnc protocols will require a vnc server on your windows machine to enable the access. Windows Remote Desktop server side is not included in Windows Home editions, so you'll need Windows Professional if you are going that route.

Here's an old video I did using an antiX desktop accessing a windows machine using vnc. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWlcTwsevYQ

In the vid, all the machines are on the same local network. If you are on different networks, you may require some kind of port forwarding. an app/system like teamviewer which uses a third site to facilitate the connection will do that kind of thing for you and allow easier access over the internet.

and if you are a google user, there is always the generic chrome remote desktop service, which works but chrome needs to be running on the server side for access from a client and you access from a chrome extension client on the client side.

rdeskop is most likely not working because you have to allow some things.

Thank You suicidaleggroll.

I want to access a Windows machine from my SUSE Linux machine,where both are virtually running on Ubuntu host. I trying to access Windows Remote Desktop from SUSE Linux. I tried "rdesktop", but it seems that rdesktop not working in SUSE Linux.

Actually I don't wanna use teamviewer, I am learning to access remote desktop through VNC or rdesktop.

How the virtual machines are set up network-wise is going to be important as well. The 2 virtual machines will need to be on the same network, which is not necessarily true even if they are on the same machine.

My virtual SUSE Linux on *.*.41.* network and Virtual Windows on *.*.23.* network. But both are virtually on same physical machine.
It should be on same network ?
Means either both on *.*.41.* network or both on *.*.23.* network,is that ?

It sounds like you have two virtual networks, one for each machine. which means the VM's can't talk to one another. Getting them on the same network would be the easiest way to do that.

Fine. I will get them on same network. But still I have confusion, if due to different virtual networks its not working, then when I tried to access SUSE remote desktop from Windows then it gives remote access successfully. How ? As you said VM's can't talk due to two virtual networks,it didn't affect here ?
