Remote Desktop Viewer
Compdoc and NoOp!
I installed the X11VNC Server and kept the Vinagre client (Desktop
Remote Viewer), everything works perfectly. Since I am new to remote
desktop protocols I will keep tweaking both and give a try to Remmina
client and rdp protocols on the days to come.
Thank you to both of you!
