Connect to Ubuntu from a Windows Remote Desktop (RDP)

In your Ubuntu machine (mine is 12.04 version), type the following command at the Terminal Command Box to install the xrdp

sudo apt-get install xrdp

Now in your Windows machine, go to Start –> All Programs –> Accessories –> Remote Desktop Connection and type the IP address or HostName of the Ubuntu machine then click‘Connect’

When prompted, enter your Ubuntu username and password and click ‘OK’

xrdp

Now you should see your Ubuntu desktop
