Thread: xrdp and nomad?

  1. #1

    Default xrdp and nomad?

    hello!
    I am trying to make rdesktop work for my computer just to be able to use rdp from another linux computer. The Yast2 requires the xrdp package to be installed first

    So far, I have nt found any reposityory for 11.2 that contains the xrdp package. Do you know any 11.2 xrdp repository?

    Searching for xrdp I read about the nomad application. Do you think I must use it in 11.2? Software repository?

    Best Regards

    Just one more question. I am pretty new to using remote computer access. So in my work I have installed and using linux. While in my home (wife's computer) I have windows vista installed. Do I really need rdp to access my linux from windows flavours?

    For some reasons I do not like rdp that much. What is the linux technology for remotely accessing machines?

    Best Regards
    Alex.

    Hi
    I use NX from nomachine.com it uses ssh and is much quicker and than
    the others.

    Ok thanks! Is this another rdp client? I saw in YasT that I can use rdp and vnc client. I do not know which is the best between those two.

    One more thing! I really love your avatar

    Hi
    Both use rdp which can be somewhat bandwith intensive, NX (or freeNX)
    use ssh tunneling so it's generally quicker. Plus the benefit of having
    one less service to run

    Hi
    These links should explain it all
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remote_Desktop_Protocol
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_Network_Computing

    VNC uses the rfb protocol, rdp protocol is MS proprietary protocol.

    Thank you Malcolm,
    Following the three-steps you list. It worked fine for me.
    I was a little worried about using the 11.1 xorg-x11-server-dmx/rdp code. But, as I said, it seemed to be fine.

    However, I have now noticed that I am having keyboard problems (missing keys: numeral 1 & 2, and the pipe, to name a few).
    Can you suggest, what where I should be checking?

    Regards, Martin
