FC2 Remote Desktop and XP Connection?


Is there a good tutorial out there (or doco that I can't find) regarding
how I would use the Remote Desktop application (under Internet > Remote
Desktop Connection) to connect my fresh FC2 installation to a Windows XP
box and vice versa? I want to be able to connect to my XP machine on my
home LAN and then also connect from my work PC (through my firewall) to
my FC2 PC. I tried nomachine but gave up because I kept getting strange
errors (possibly due to FC2 base load NOT using Xfree86). Any / all help greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

Not using VNC directly.

You will need to install a sound server that is compatible with windows and linux.

Take a look at this if you want sound too:

more help please

David, I found and installed the esound software, and can broadcast it well across my local network to a windows box also running esound, how can I expand this out to a work box connecting to Linux via SSH?

You could tunnel the sound over ssh using port forwarding. Map a local port of 5001 to port 5001 on the remote machine.
