I am using VNC Viewer to remote into my Linux PC from my Windows 7 PC. Just wondering is there any way to use Windows Remote Desktop instead? I tried, but can't seem to get it to work. Both computers are at my desk. They are not in different locations. Thanks

I've read that rdesktop is an open source client for Microsoft's RDP protocol. I'd look into that.

There are also a number of Windows X servers. Not what you asked for, but it may be a solutions (even a better solution) depending on what you are trying to do.

It should be more efficient, and opens a single application in its own window, rather than a desktop in a window.

I have only done this Linux to Linux, not Linux to Windows, so the configuration required was minimal and I did not need to install anything.
