    Hey guys,

    I tried to install some remote desktop, I tried VNC-viewer and xdrp but I do not get it to work.
    Tried different tuts on google, but no luck. Is there maybe someone that want to install for me?

    I will appreciate it!

    Thanks in advance

    If you want to ACCESS your linux machine you need a software that listens on some incoming connection so vncviewer and xrdp are not what you are looking for... Maybe you're better off trying teamviewer: http://www.teamviewer.com/en/download/linux.aspx that incidentally works both as server and/or client ;)

    Ubuntu vps probably means that the easiest way to control it is via ssh. Unless you have a DE like KDE/Unity/Gnome, which is rare thing to see on VPS.
    Try putty, if you're on Win at home.

    on the VPS you need desktop sharing enabled (in the unity dash search for "desktop sharing"), or a VNC server installed
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install tightvncserver
    and then to connect you could try the client remmina (RDP or VNC protocol)
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install remmina
    another option is teamviewer, very easy to install and use

    Hi I have used both Remmina and Teamviewer, but the best for Linux in my opinion is NoMachine. But it really depends what you want to do. I use NM for both accessing work files, transferring documents and occasionally for streaming my work videos.

    I can vouch for ssh and PuTTY. I use both quite often.

    To use SSH on Mac, just open terminal and type:

    ssh [email protected]

    User being your username and ip being your servers address. Then hit enter.

    For ssh putty is best . I have problems with copy paste in vnc viewer when accessing ubuntu Gui's Vps . Just don't expect the quality to be similar to windows RDP .
