    Remote access/administration


    Hi folks,

    Ubuntu 9.10
    Windows Server 7
    Windows Vista

    I need setup remote admin of Windows Server 7 and Windows Vista on Ubuntu. Would VNC is the right road to go? If YES, will following URL be the right guide/tutorial for me to follow?

    Remote Desktop Sharing in Ubuntu
    Remote Desktop Sharing in Ubuntu -- Debian Admin

    VNC How-to

    I would use tsclient to connect from linux to windows.
    This way, you can use the native RDP in the windows OS.

    tsclient is in the standard ubuntu repository.

    Hi Irithori,

    Thanks for your advice.

    It should be WAN connection via public IP. Whether following URLs are relevant to setup tsclient on Ubuntu;

    How To Connect To A Windows Terminal Server From Ubuntu - tsclient
    How To Connect To A Windows Terminal Server From Ubuntu

    HOWTO Use Remote Desktop from Linux - tsclient
    HOWTO Use Remote Desktop from Linux - Linux - University Wiki

    What will be the setup/configuration on Window server 7 and Vista?

    TIA

    Public IP and worldwide reachable might be a problem..

    According to this:
    Remote Desktop Protocol - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    encryption was added in RDP 5.2

    tsclient offers RDP 5.
    You might want to ensure, it does support encryption (couldnt find that info in a hurry)

    To be sure, a ssh tunnel or VPN comes to mind.


    If memory serves, enabling remote desktop on a windows system should be
    somewhere here :
    Start -> Computer -> <right click> -> Options -> Remote Options -> Remote -> activate remote desktop

    Hi,

    I have been running ssh for sometimes. It works on Linux/Unix servers. How can I install openssh-server and openssh-clients on Windows server and Vista?

    Google brought me following links;

    OpenSSH for Windows
    sshwindows.sf.net: OpenSSH for Windows

    OpenSSH on Windows v3.4-3
    OpenSSH on Windows

    How to install OpenSSH sshd server and sftp server on a Windows
    erdelynet.com Blog Archive See cygwin.com for Cygwin + SSH Docs

    How to install OpenSSH sshd server and sftp server on a Windows 2000 or Windows XP or Windows Vista

    The project, Openssh for Windows, seems stopped.

    I haven't run OpenVPN before. Other advice noted and thanks
