Remote Linux Mint (Ubuntu) on VMWare from Windows over SSH

Postby mbarne on Thu Jan 08, 2009 5:19 pm

Hello,
in this article you can find information about connecting to a Linux Mint computer from a Windows Client.
The scenario is interesting because the Linux pc is virtualized on a Windows Server Host (using VMWare and running Windows XP).
Remote login, XDMCP, Gnome Remote Desktop and SSH X11 Port Forwarding.

Link to the article Remote Linux Mint (Ubuntu) on VMWare from Windows over SSH.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Hmmm, seems overly complicated :)

I have been installing the FreeNX server on all my family & friends PC's who I have converted to Linux. This is a very simple solution for remote desktop connections. I have been able to connect to them using the Linux & Windows client software provided from NoMachine. Please see the links below.

FreeNX server installation howto:

NoMachine client software:

The instructions suggested Windows XP or better, so I installed Linux :)

Yes, I know that NX is simpler... but I wanted to use only "standard" software, like xserver.

Also, what was interesting for me was permitting LAN users to have a linux desktop account without having to dedicate a pc for it.
