Being a windows / linux user, I would like to just use one protocol to

I particularly do this as I often work at home. I have been - until now
- forced to use NX Client or VNC to connect to my Linux boxes. Though
functional, they are always lacking in my mind. Plus I like having one
interface - the RDC client on Windows - to connect.

I just read an article in Linux Magazine (december issue - )
about XRDP.

I went and downloaded it from the home page:

I compiled, ran checkinstall, and installed the rpm. Sure enough - after
a few config tweaks mentioned in the article - I'm up and running on

Very cool!

xrdp is included on openSUSE 11.1 btw...
