Thread: about remote desktop control

  1. #1

    Default about remote desktop control

    Dear all,
    My OS is openSuse 11.4. I want to control my PC which is my office room by remote desktop when I am at home. Can you tell me what should I do to my PC? Which software or programs should be installed on it? How to setup it? Or is there any website which has summarized the instructions? Thank you very much.

    and PC's OS is?
    it is different if you wish to control Linux to Linux, of Linux to Windows, and there are few ways to do it, depending on source and target OS.

    I use laptop at home. Its OS is Windows XP. That means I want to connect from Windows XP (my laptop) to openSUSE (my PC in office room).

    If the other PC is windows and you want to use "remote desktop" in the
    windows sense of the word install rdesktop in openSUSE. It is a command line
    tool.
    If in addition you want a gui use krdc if you are on KDE.

    So it is the other way than I guessed. Have a look at this
    http://opensuse.swerdna.org/suserdp.html
    it is for 11.2 and 11.3 but chances are good that it works the same for
    11.4.
    Otherwise I would use vnc which is available for windows and linux.

    So it is the other way than I guessed. Have a look at this
    Windows Linux RDP Remote Desktop Connections using openSUSE as Client or Server (terminal server)
    it is for 11.2 and 11.3 but chances are good that it works the same for
    11.4.
    Otherwise I would use vnc which is available for windows and linux.

    But be warned that I did not test it with 11.4, so if it fails just go for
    vnc.

    Hi Martin,
    I failed to intall the xorg-x11-server-dmx-7.3.99-29.8.x86-64.rpm with the warning message: nothing to provides libcrypto.so.0.9.8()(64bit) needed by xorg-x11-server-dmx-7.3.99-29.8.x86_64.
    How to go on then? Any suggestion?
    Thanks.
