I have a system dual-booting Windows 7 Pro and Bio-Linux ("Bio-Linux provides more than 500 bioinformatics programs on an Ubuntu Linux 10.04 base" 10.04 is LTS, supported until April 2013).
I have grub set to show the list of operating systems at startup and wait for user input to select what OS to boot into. I'd like to run remote desktop on both operating systems. I am very familiar with the Windows side but new to Ubuntu.
Do I need a separate IP address for each OS or can I use the same one on both? Right now I have two different IP addresses, one assigned to each OS, but I'd be happy to use just one if that is possible.
How can I control which OS to remote in to if I use the same IP address? I got remote desktop to respond on the Ubuntu side but it seems to only give me the terminal, how can I get to the GUI desktop?
