Remote Desktop (as in KDE remote desktop)
Though I am using samba to access between kde and windows, I had always wanted to find out the difference and uses between the above "protocols?" but googling for them doesn't really clear my understanding.
Appreciate if someone can help to share and help me to understand a little better.
Well, SSH is encrypted protocol used mainly in remote connections.
Samba is used to share files between computers. It uses some smb-protocol that windows supports so it enables sharing files between unices and windows.
VNC in unencrypted protocol to get remote connection and I think the remote desktop and nxdesktop use it too.
To get further info, check out wikipedia for example.
