How to Remote Desktop Into A Windows Server From Ubuntu
In this example I am running Ubuntu 7.10 but this should work the same way in more updated releases such as Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 or Ubuntu 11.04 (Unity). The Terminal Server application is installed by default, so this makes things very simple.
- Click on Applications > Internet > Terminal Server Client
- Enter in the server name or IP address
- Set the Protocol to RDP
That's all the information you need. You can enter in the domain name, user if you want to, but is not required.
- Click Connect
Enter in your username and password
You should now be connected.
Things are done almost the same in unity as in Gnome 2. The only difference is how you launch Terminal Service Client.
- Click on the Ubuntu icon in the upper left hand conrer
Click on Internet Apps
Click on Terminal Service Client
Enter your server name.
Login to new server
