I have a laptop and desktop running 14.04. I want to use Remmina to access either system depending on where I am. I want to be able to access them even when the other system is at the login screen.
I can access them using the VNC setting but not when a system is at the login screen. The response is "Unable to Connect to VNC Server". Presumably it is not started until after a login. Is there a setting for it to run all the time?
Is it not possible to use RDP between the two systems? I have connected to a Raspberry Pi using RDP but do not know what server it runs. Also to Windows XP. A reason for running RDP is to control the resolution of the remote system on the host monitors because the laptop has wide display. I tried xrdp but all I got was a funny white with black screen with a big X in the middle.
