How can I work remotely on Windows 8 machine from my Ubuntu 10.04 PC?
Is there any guide how to set up remote desktop and VNC this way?
(I don't want to use TeamViewer).
There ist a Java-standalone client to use on different systems. You don't need the ThightVNC-server to use the client.
If you want' to use it over the internet use Dynamic DNS to connect to your network.
If you stay in the same network everything should be fine just with a VNC server + client.
Best of luck!
