How to create something like RDC for linux?


Well, i've figured out i need KDE or GNOME.
and i have dicovered NXServer.

i think i got KDE and GNOME installed, but is there anything else out there other than NX that will allow me to do remote desktop using KDE or GNOME ?

and if you know how to properly install NX, could you please explain to me thanks guys!

Any desktop can do remote desktop. The normal way to do it in Linux is using ssh. You can call application from any unix complicant OS (freedsd, mac os, solaris and linux) and Windows xming or cygwin. SSH client is installed by default in any linux distribution and server in most of them. To install is in Ubuntu, type

sudo apt-get install openssh-server

and you are ready to use it, it is that simple.

The other common way to do it is using VNC.

You can use GUI via ssh, you just have to enable it:
ssh -Y user@hostname
With this command, you can now execute GUI application remotely.

X11 is a client/server application, windows does not have to be native to display, they can be piped over network just fine.

root@server was an example, like someone saying, "state your name".

When you try to carry out this example, you need to replace "root@server" with an actual user and an actual server name.

If you filled out a form that said "put your name here", would you write "your name" or would you enter your actual name? It's the same idea.

It take Hostname if your router support DNS correctly or IP addresses.
