In the past I used to connect to my Windows server from Ubuntu with remmina (through rdp protocol). I've recently installed Ubuntu gnome remix (12.10.1) and gnome-boxes and I'm wondering if I can do the same with gnome-boxes.

I've tried creating a new item in gnome-boxes and entering as url "rdp://x.x.x.x" as I used to do in remmina bit it says that the rdp protocol is not supported.

Unfortunately, I cannot find any manual or documentation listing the supported protocol or giving instruction on how to connect to a remote desktop. Can someone help me please?

  • I wouls like to know this too. I'm in the same boat...

According to the todo list on github rdp-support is not yet implemented.
