This article will guide you on the steps to set up remote desktop on #Debian. X2Go can be used to access Windows systems through a #proxy. Client packages can be run on #FreeBSD, Linux, #OS X, or #Windows.
With the desktop sharing function of X2go you can gain full-access to the desktop of another computer, similar to programs such as Remote Desktop, TeamViewer, and LogMeIn. You can see an #X2go session from somebody else, but you can also see a normal desktop. Desktop Sharing functionality requires access to port 22.
