Enable remote desktop for Ubuntu

On your Ubuntu:

Go to System->Preferences->Remote Desktop

And apply the following settings:

Open up vnc ports on your firewall (in case they are “blocked”)

$ sudo iptables -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 5901 -j ACCEPT

$ sudo iptables -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 5900 -j ACCEPT

** 5900: Default port for VNC (display 0) and 5901: Port used for VNC display 1

On your windows:

- Get the vnc viewer client from realvnc

- In the VNC viewer connection detail window enter <your ubuntu IP>:o
