Microsoft Remote Desktop and vncviewer for OpenSolaris

Microsoft Remote Desktop with rdesktop and VNC client with vncviewer are available for OpenSolaris installation with IPS. In this funny example the first connection is a VNC connection from my OpenSolaris desktop to another OpenSolaris ESX Virtual Machine, and the second connection is a Microsoft Remote Destkop Connection from the OpenSolaris ESX Virtual Machine to a Second Microsoft XP ESX Virtual Machine.



To Install VNC client and rdesktop Client with IPS under OpenSolaris
# pkg install SUNWvncviewer
# pkg install SUNWrdesktop


To Run VNC client
# vncviewer <hostname_or_IP_address>

To Run Microsoft Remote Desktop Client
# rdesktop <hostname_or_IP_address>


To Allow Remote Desktop From Windows XP Use This Procedure from Microsoft, and To Allow VNC connection From OpenSolaris use Gnome Menu System Preference Share Desktop or you can use Xvnc which is bundled with OpenSolaris (To enable Xvnc).


Have Fun with OpenSolaris...

Can anyone here possibly tell me what the advantage is of the native MS offering over third party PC remote access software? I tend to think that the Windows offering is pretty feature barren, but I have never even been able to get a connection working, si I can't say for sure. Any input is greatly appreciated!
