I have two computers running Ubuntu and have Remmina installed. I want 'How to' to setup both computer so that one computer can take remote desktop of other.
In order to be able to use Remmina, you need first to activate certain options of the "Desktop Sharing" screen (Dash -> Desktop Sharing) on both computers:
On the Desktop Sharing Preferences:
- Activate the option "Allow other users to view your desktop"
- Activate the option "Allow other users to control your desktop"
For security's sake, also:
- Activate the option "You must confirm each access to this machine"
- Activate the option "Require the user to enter this password" and provide a password
Once the configuration is done, you can simply open Remmina, create a new connection and specify the connection to the other computer using VNC (virtual network computing) protocol and using the password you used in the "Desktop Sharing" screen. Hint: You can ignore the field "user".
