Windows 7 remote control Ubuntu 12.04  

Posted by Xkram or MarkX

First, check the setting in "desktop sharing" so that other user can control this desktop.

Then install the xrdp to transfer the linux VNC protocol to windows RDP protocol.
sudo apt-get install xrdp Now you can connect this desktop from windows by using "Remote Desktop Connection ".
The default port is ":3389", or your can edit it in "/etc/xrdp/xrdp.ini"
