Ubuntu – How to set up remote desktop

remote desktopsoftware-recommendation

I have some user accounts in my Ubuntu 10.04 and I want them to login from all over the world and access their data using Internet and of course I want any of my users to be able to access only their own user and to be able to change data.

What should I do? Are there any remote desktop apps?

Best Answer

The feature is already installed on your Ubuntu. The "server" can be configured in System/Preferences/Remote Desktop, whereas the "client" is in Applications/Internet/Terminal Server Client.
