[How To] Set up Remote Desktop on Nokia N900 !

Posted on 2:33 PM by SlipKoRnSaad

rdesktop is an open source client for Windows Terminal Services, capable of natively speaking Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) in order to present the user's Windows desktop, if you can control your N900 from your computer and Vice Versa with VNC !, now you can access even windows desktops in traditional ways with rdesktop, use your n900 memory drives to transfer files between pc and phone etc.

So, how the Remote Desktop Mobile client on the N900 works with Windows 7 (or XP) in 3 easy steps?

1- Set up your computer to enable remote desktop access (you can look here for Win XP or if you use Win 7 just type "remote" in search field (click on windows start icon) and choose : "allow remote desktop...")

2- Download, install rdesktop and rdesktop-cli on your Nokia N900, (both are available in the Extras Devel repository) 


3- In "RDP server" you enter the IP address of your desktop PC, for username you use your Windows login and the password field and leave others as default configuration...

4- Connect --> Done !




Pretty nice eh?
