Make Fedora 20 a remote workstation
Some guys in campus want to find a Linux workstation to use, but they just do not want to modify his own disk. So I decide to configure one of my workstation as a remote workstation for them to share.
I searched a lot for how to configure VNC with xdmcp but it did not work fine for me. I suddenly thought that since they are using Windows, so they must have rdp. So I switched my idea to use xrdp as the resolution.
The steps is easy, but due to my poor network connection, it takes me some time to test.
yum install xrdp
- Make XRDP enable by default
systemctl enable xrdp.service
systemctl start xrdp.service
systemctl enable xrdp-sesman.service
systemctl start xrdp-sesman.service
- Add firewall rules to allow rdp access.
firewall-cmd –permanent –add-port=3389/tcp
