I am a total beginner. I am totally frustrated in partial answers and I am unable to understand and the alphabet soup. The answers just confuse me. The instructions say to do this, but I have no idea how to do this. What fits in each of the required setup fields? How do I find out the correct format and data that each field requires? There is nothing I have been able to find that explains the basics of setting up remmina between two computers over the internet where the IPv4 addresses are known. Is the connection secure (encrypted en-route)? Where is the server to be located or is the client also the server? Any assistance would be helpful.
The two computers are Ubuntu 12.04 32 located in Argentina and Ubuntu 12.04 AMD64 located in the States (both are in America).
My first problem starts under 'Profile': 'Name' May anything may go here? 'Group' Since there will be only the two ends, does Group require an entry? 'Protocol' Which would be best and which would be default supported by both ends? 'Basic' That should be the computer in the States, but what name should apply and in what format? Does it require a domain name or will an IP address suffice? 'Advanced' Seems the server must initiate the contact as 'Client name' 'Startup program' 'Startup path' fields are requested. What goes in each field and in what format? 'SSH' tunnel? Does that require a separate setup or is that built into either or both the server and client? Where is the server? and How do I get it? or Is it built into the client? What is the server-client relationship? or Are they interchangeable?
