    RDP to Linux servers from Windows no Windows estra software needed


    Hi folks

    I know a load of you have things line NAS servers etc on Linux boxes -- and running them headless is the usual way.

    It's simple though to control them from your Windows computers --works fine in W10 too.

    1) On the Linux side install XRDP (usually comes in your package manager) and start the XDRP service. You need the X-Server on your Linux box and chkconfig --levels 5 xrdp on.


    2) Now on your Windows box simply use RDP as you would to any other windows box -- just enter the IP address or the Host name.

    3) you've now got your Linux server desktop on your Windows box and can control it from there.
