I'm attempting to connect using Windows Remote Desktop Connection.

Can I make Remote Desktop Connection from other machines to Ubuntu 12.04 workstation?

  • It's not exactly clear what you are asking (at least for me). Are you looking for an application to install on the Ubuntu workstation? Or for applications to install on "other machines"? Also, there are many Remote Desktop alternatives: what are you looking for? VNC perhaps? – Andrea Corbellini Aug 26 '13 at 15:59

Use SSH you can do just about anything with the Linux shell.

If you really want to 'take over' your desktop, use something like VNC
