Specs: Windows 7 Home Premium X64, Q9450 @ 3.2Ghz / 6GB PC6400
At the moment I am running a test rig with Linux Mint 13 "Cinnamon" (32bit) I'm giving this O/S a go as I am hoping to run a couple of PC's remotely. I'm just wondering the easiest route for accessing the PC remotely through windows 7. At the moment it's through Ethernet to make things easier to troubleshoot. I need to configure 2 PC's with remote desktop if I cant do it with Linux I'm probably going to use XP pro X64 instead.

At this stage I just need to access it over a LAN. I have already changed the desktop sharing preferences to allow others to view/control the desktop, but thats about all I could do that seemed obvious.

I'm totally new to this, with most of my previous Linux experience coming from Knoppix CD's and Damn Small Linux on ancient PC's. So far I'm incredibly impressed with Linux Mint's usability and features! Any help greatly appreciated!

✔ Best Answer
The traditional way to do this is via X Window, but for your purposes the easiest way would be to use VNC. Google it.

Remmina is also a choice.

I hate VNC myself so I would suggest FreeNX. The performance of VNC is just awful.
