I'm a newbie to Ubuntu, sorry in case this question is too stupid for you. I need to connect to my original desktop Ubuntu 16.04 from Windows 7 via my router(local network).

By "original desktop", I mean the one which loads after I enter my Ubuntu password on my laptop (I don't know the name of this desktop/sorry)

Solutions I've tried

Is there a solution to connect remotely to Ubuntu 16.04 desktop like "windows RDP"?

  • Is this a dual boot setup (Windows and Ubuntu on the same computer)? or are they different computers? – Jeff Mar 16 '18 at 14:34
  • The linked answer has multiple each with multiple distinct approaches. Could you please add a little more detail? What exactly did you do, what did you expect to happen and what happened instead? Did you encounter any warning or error messages? Please reproduce them in their entirety in your question. You can select, copy and paste terminal content and most dialogue messages in Ubuntu. Please edit your post to add information instead of posting a comment. (see How do I ask a good question?) – David Foerster Mar 16 '18 at 15:57
  • I have two different PCs connected to one router via wifi network. PC from which I want to connect has Windows7 OS. – Yaro Mar 16 '18 at 22:30
  • David, thanks for your attention. Ubuntu 16.04 is new set OS with xrdp installed. I need to connect to the desktop which I see right after downloading Ubuntu at laptop with Ubuntu installed.I have no warning messages. The connection via xrdp goes correctly but I connect to different desktop. – Yaro Mar 16 '18 at 22:32
