If you are a computer technician, perhaps the Remote Desktop feature is too familiar to you, right?
However, in this article, I will remind you a little bit about the concept so that those who are new to the blog, or just learning about the Remote Desktop feature can understand more clearly.
#first. What is Remote Desktop?
To put it simply, Remote Desktop is a feature that supports remote computer control via LAN or through the Internet.
On Windows 10 and Windows 11 operating systems…, Remote Desktop is also known as Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP), formerly known as Microsoft Terminal Services Client 🙂
Remote Desktop Connection is built-in on Windows operating system, it appears since Windows XP version and above, users only need a few simple settings to be able to use it.
Remote desktop is usually accessed via port (port) 3389, combined with software/tools that come with Windows, or using 3rd party software such as VNC, TeamViewer, etc.
In order for Remote Desktop to work, one of the supporting protocols is required CHEAPemote EASYesktop Protocol (RDP), DRAWirtual WOMENteam OLDomputing (VNC), NX or Independent OLDomputing Aarchitecture (ICA).
So, on the computers or on the server that you want to perform Remote Desktop to, you will have to install programs/services that support the above protocols:
- Windows: Remote Desktop Services
- Linux: VNC Server
In addition, to be able to make a Remote Desktop connection, Remote Desktop Client software is indispensable, typically such as: RDP of Windows, Chrome Remote DesktopTightVNC Client,..
