I am fairly new to Linux so excuse the newbie questions I may ask.
I am trying to install a Linux application on ubuntu server from Amazon EC2 clouds. I would like to have remote desktop access to the server instead of terminal. how can I do that? I know there is a way to enable remote desktop in ubuntu, but i guess it needs to be done through SSH. can any one help me wit that? what are the commands? thanks for any help. god bless.

[SOLVED] Help setting up Remote desktop server 12.04 LTS
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 11, 2012
I'm trying to set up Remote server to access remote desktop from my mac os x lion.
I'm using Chicken of the VNC client on the mac. I'm just trying to connect on my local network now. The Ubuntu pc is 192.168.1.106. I have set Chicken on the VNC to connect to this ip address and display 0 and I get Authentication Failed. If I use display 1 I get Connection refused: connect() I think these are ports 5900 and 5901.
So I'm at a loss as to what to do next.
[SOLVED] Remote Desktop Error: Failed to Load Session Ubuntu2d
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 13, 2013
Okay so I am a noob to linux but not PCs in general so I'll get to the point here. I'm trying to connect remote desktop from a windows PC to a server (yes I noticed if you mention ms or windows you should post in general, but I'm not allowed since this is my first post). So, first here are the specs:
Dell AMD E-450 APU with Radeon HD Graphics (1.65 GHz)
4 GB RAM
Windows 7 (64-bit)
Internet: Cable modem 15mbps/2.5mbps
OVH Kimsufi Intel Atom D425 1.8 GHz (512k cache)
Ubuntu Desktop 12.04 "Precise Pangolin" LTS + x2go (64-bit)
Internet: 100mbps/100mbps dedicated line
So I have been able to set the server up and I have played with it a little bit and gotten more comfortable with the commands, but now I tried to connect remote desktop and I get this:
So I tried to do a little research and my guess was gdm wasn't running. So I installed it and started the service okay, but I keep getting that same mes
Remote Desktop in Ubuntu 11.10 using Unity2D

I'm just setting up an old laptop for a friend using the (currently) newest version of Ubuntu (11.10) using the Unity-2D environment.
How do I enable desktop sharing for this computer?
I've been searching for hours for the usual panel that is present in all older Ubuntu versions. It's not part of the system-settings.
I do find a remote desktop viewer, but it's the desktop of THIS laptop I want to share.
Do I need to install an additional package - in the old days it was part of the base system - or did I simply miss it?
Remote Desktop Connection to Ubuntu from Windows 7
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 14, 2012
I am an escapee from Mandrake/Mandriva after eight years or more, sadly they just seemed to losing their way.
After settling for Ubuntu and solving a networking problem which was largely my fault I like Ubuntu very much.
So to the problem.... My eyesight is pretty poor so I have a large high definition monitor on my Windows 7 Ultimate machine and if I need to do any administration on any other machine I use RDC from that machine. Now I can connect easily from the Ubuntu using RDC to any Windows machine, but not the other way around, which is the way I need it. On 'Desktop Sharing Preferences I have ticked allow other users to view and control your desktop. I was not sure what to do about the Security choices so I have tried various combinations without success.
The Windows Explorer connects fine to the Ubuntu and I can ping by IP address and computer name, so it would seem that it is something to do with security on the Ubuntu. No Firewall is installed which is the default.
How to use rdesktop (Windows remote desktop connection)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 10, 2008
rdesktop is a client program that allows you to connect from your Ubuntu computer to your Windows computer to remote control the Windows computer. In other words, while you are sitting in front of your Ubuntu computer at home, you can log into and access your Windows computer as if you are sitting in front of the Windows computer. See remote desktop software.
rdesktop and VNC and Terminal Server Client (comparison)
There is another similar program called VNC. VNC is slow compared to rdesktop and VNC connection is unencrypted while rdesktop connection is encrypted by default. But there is a way to use VNC with encrypted connection. VNC works on almost all operating systems. See comparison of remote desktop software.
Terminal Server Client (Applications > Internet > Terminal Server Client) is a GUI front-end to VNC and rdesktop. If you open Terminal Server Client, you will see Protocol option (RDP, RDPv5, VNC), RDP and RDPv5 are for rdesktop connection. You should use Termi

I configures VNC and logged in my ubuntu box remotly, i had an unsecure password and when i changed it to a secure one, which happens to be the same as my root password, VNC is failing to authenticate!

Ubuntu Server Remote Desktop Connection & Shared Folders
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 13, 2011
I have a AD domain configured with a Window 2008 Server with roles that include File Server, DNS, DHCP, & a Print Server.
I'm in the process of building a media server using Ubuntu Server v11.04. To make life easier, I installed Ubuntu Desktop GUI and I joined the media server as a member of the AD domain with the hope of remotely connecting the Ubuntu Server via Remote Desktop.
What settings are available and how do I configure for remote access?
Also, from the Ubuntu server, I'd like to access the Windows shared folders. How do I find the Shared folders?
Third, how do I share folders within the media server to other devices?
