I'm currently in the last steps of migrating a CentOS mailserver to the x64 version.However, under the old 32 bit version, I was using XRDP to access the Centos box from my Windows boxes.However I can't seem to find the XRDP package in the standard repos so this is prompting me to look at possible alternatives (XRDP was incompatible with my windows 7 box anyway soI had to RDP to another server of ours running 2003 to RDP into the mailserver which was far from ideal).Basically, I'd like to be able to seamlessly access the Centos box with a standard RDP client.
I know VNC Server/Clients would be an option but RDP gives me the freedom of any windows box being able to access the server on the same adress/port without installing software on any windows box I encounter.Are there any viable alternatives to XRDP ?There's no "add-on" to VNC server that could enable it to accept RDP connections ?

Windows 2008 R2 running on VMWARE, workstation 7.0, host machine is Ubuntu 64bit, latest release. Have clients connecting via LTSP using Remnote Desktop Connection. I tried several options for RDC like -a 16 for 16 bit graphics, but to no avail.What can I do, to have a better Remote Desktop environment? One thing I have not done, is install the Xserver Via Chrome Custom X server on the LTSP server?
How to change the welcome screen resolution? (Where you input the username and password) I use NVIDIA driver which download from its official web site. After reboot, the welcome screen out of bottom.Change session, language and restart computer menu not in the screen. Is there a way to set the welcome screen resolution? or how can I fix it?
I have Centos 5.5 64 bit (with all updates) installed on a new computer that I built, and everything works perfectly out of the box except for the fact that if I try and change the resolution of the display to the max resolution that I can use (aka native resolution of the monitor at 1920 X 1080) using system-config-display, as soon as I log out and log back it in, it reverts to 1280 X 1024. I am very leery of changing the xorg file because this is an expensive monitor and I do not want to trash it, and I have absolutely no experience setting up these video parameters in linux. I did try switching from the vesa driver to the radeon driver using system-config-display, but Centos forced a reconfigure of everything, bringing it back once again to vesa at 1280 X 1024.
I have no desire to to any gaming in Linux, so 2D resolution at 1920 X 1080 using open source drivers would be fine (Whatever the easiest solution would be). I would consider updating drivers, but I my number one concern in doing so would to keep Centos stable. All I ask for is text that is easier to read when I open a terminal, because I work almost exclusively from the command line. My very old computer which is running Fedora 13 and much older hardware has absolutely brilliant graphics in comparison (Obviously newer drivers, kernel, looks like it does not use an xorg file, etc).
I am relatively new to Linux, but have been running Ubuntu for quite a while personally. I am setting up a simple CentOS server to run RT: Request Tracker [URL] here at work. This is going to be a simple virtual server running on VMware ESXi. I have the server up and running in VMware workstation. Since this will be a virtual server we will need to remotely administrate it. It is not a member of our Windows domain, it doesn't really need to be. So I can't connect to it remotely, and I am stuck. I have set the remote desktop preferences, and choose not to ask for confirmation, and set a password, but I cannot connect. I am using VNC Viewer. If I enter the host name it cannot be found, I am guessing because it isn't part of the domain DNS doesn't know how to find the host, but it also doesn't work when I attempt to connect via IP address. I can ping, and I can SSH with Putty but we will need to remote desktop to administrate RT.
I used to use Linux a long time ago and remember there was a way in the startup script to change the video resolution from 80x25 to high resolution line 50 lines mode. I can't seem to find were to do that any more. I have been reading posts and etc and everything is about changing resolution in X-Windows. how to change the default screen outside of X-Windows>
I am running a server (multipale roles). The base OS is Centos 5.2 and an xen kernel... The system is usually headless... Most of the work i do is also through terminal. However I have come across multiple situations that require me to visually have access. The problem I am running into is that the remote desktop built into the system dosent enable remote access to the system intill i have looged in on the system? What are my options? or is their a way to boot remote desktop with the system?
I have a centos 5.5 server, without a monitor connected to it.Sometime i need to connect to it with VNC, but maximum resolution is 800x600.How can i increase it at least 1024x748 ??I tried in system-config-display changing the monitor to a generic CRT 1024x768, and rebooted.But only allowed resolutions are 800x600 and 640x480.
I have given up on trying to change the resolution on my old server with 11.3 installed because there is no easy way in 11.3 to change to 1024 x 768 x 64K colours to accomodate the inadequate memory of the on board display adaptor so I have reinstalled 11.2 which had gui for controlling display resolution.
I must keep my /home partition intact and therein, I suspect lies the problem because in the /home directory there are both .kde and .kde4 directories. Although immediately after installation of 11.2 (network install) kde 3.5 was running, after all the updates had run I ended up with kde 4.3.5 and therefore the same problem of not being able easily to change screen resolution. Is it possible to revert to earlier kde and how should I do this please? Another option I have still to try is to install a display adaptor card. The machine bios is supposed to turn off the integrated display controller if it detects one in a slot, but how do I get my operating system to find and install drivers for the new card?
I want to remote-desktop into a windows box that happens be hooked up to a linux server.The linux server uses a static IP. I've already enabled remote-desktop on the windows machine, but am wondering what I need to do server-side to make the server's ip forward to the windows machine. I know this can be done with iptables but I'm not sure how to work it.
I have two Centos 5 servers one running Asterisk with PHP installed and another sever running as a MySql Database server, at the moment when I try run simple script to see if I can connect to the remote server I get the following error.Quote:Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2)
I am unable to run remote desktop from my fc 13 server, to my laptop. I have read the remote desktop setup and added port 6000 to firewall, added host name of server to xhost (firstname.lastname@example.org). Added the line to /etc/gdm/custom.conf like in fedora guide (DisallowTCP=false). But i still get the error
[nick@pc1 ~]$ xclock No protocol specified Error: Can't open display: 192.168.1.101:0
I've just been tasked with making our company's workstations available from remote locations over our internet connection. While it seems simple in concept, I know there will be several issues I'll have to deal with. What I'd like to know is if anyone has recommendations as far as software to use and methods for securing connections. I'd like to have communications encrypted, which last I heard OpenVNC couldn't do (maybe that's not the case?). Also, I'm not really sure how the interactions between windows clients vs. my linux server and the remote connections should be handled. Would I need a separate instance of say, OpenVNC, on each client that I wanted to be allowed remote access?
The new version of Slack is on the doorstep and soon it's time to clean up my box.
What is your remote desktop server of choice?
I require a few things: - Linux side server that starts up on boot - Windows and linux side client - Preferably attachable to a running desktop session, although I can live with a server that starts up X - Semi-effortless setup on Slackware (with slackbuilds, maybe)
This far I've used x11vnc, but we don't get along all the time. I was interested to try teamviewer, but so far I didn't find information how to use it as standalone server.
