MEPIS 6

Remote Desktop Connection is found under Internet -> Connection.

1. In the “Remote desktop" field type in the LAN IP of your remote Server (PC) you want to control. Example - 192.168.2.1:0 – it must have the “:0" following the IP address. This is because VNC, the actual application being used, can create several sessions when connecting to a Linux box allowing you to type in :1, :2, etc. corresponding to the session number. For a Windows box we just need the default session of :0.

2. Click Connect

3. Once you click connect you need to choose the Connection Type, according to what speed of Internet connection you have. You will then be prompted for the VNC password you set on the Remote Server (PC).

4. You should now be connected to the Remote Server (PC) and able to control it as if you were physically present at the remote site.
