Facing issues in RDP from Windows to Linux
1 Attachment(s)

I am trying to do RDP from Windows to my RHEL6 VirtualBox VM. i am not even able to establish rdp to my rhel6 box.

From Windows i am using Remote Desktop Manager. I am able to ping the Vm from windows. I have also set up VNC server on RHEL VM

So could you please let me know if i am missing something. I have attached the screen shots for better understanding.

Let me know if you would need any further information from me to investigate the issue further.

Your issue is that you cannot connect to a vnc server with a rdp client. You need a vnc client on the windows side such as tinyvnc, ultravnc, or realvnc. I use tightvnc but any will work. Then try to connect with the vnc client and it should work.
