Can Remote Desktop Connection use in Linux?

Hi guys
Can I know whether Remote Desktop Connection can be use in Linux just like windows?
If the answer is either Yes or No, is there a source to proof it?
Thanks guys:smile:

You would download TightVNC for this purpose in Linux. Otherwise you haft to ssh/telnet into the machine and only get a console to work with.

If you want to connect to a Windows Server from a Linux client via the RDP protocol, it's as easy as downloading an open-source RDP client and using it like you would from Windows normally. My personal fav on Linux is Gnome RDP.

But if you want to use Linux as a server, you'll need to use a different remote desktop protocol, like VNC suggested by Justin above.

Good luck.
