RDP from Ubuntu

I did not know until today that there is something called gnome-rdp using which one can RDP to Windows machines from Ubuntu (or any other linux flavour I imagine). Installation is simple on Ubuntu, with it available in Synaptic Package Manager. To start it you can type in gnome-rdp in a console or go to Applications -> Internet -> Gnome-RDP. Once it has started, usage is quite simple – though you might want to change the remote desktop size and colours. Interestingly this also supports VNC and SSH.

This blog is my personal blog and while it does reflect my experiences in my professional life, this is just my thoughts. Most of the entries are technical though sometimes they can vary from the wacky to even political – however that is quite rare. Quite often, I have been asked what’s up with the “gibberish” and the funny title of the blog? Some people even going the extra step to say that, this is a virus that infected their system (ahem) well. [:D] It actually is quite simple, and if you have still not figured out then check out this link – whats in a name?
