Ubuntu Remote Desktop from Windows XP
I am a very new Ubuntu user. I have a machine with 9.04 loaded. I need to operate it by remote desktop on my local network from a Windows XP machine. The Howto instructions from several sources are all similar. They tell me to configure my Ubuntu from the menu at System - Preferences - Remote Desktop as follows:
1. Allow other users to view your desktop
2. Allow other users to control your desktop
3. Require the user to enter this password: wwwwwww
4. Configure the network automatically to accept connections.
On my Windows machine I have tried both RealVNC and UltraVNC. I have turned off my firewalls. I have tried to connect using my local address 192.168.2.nnn:0. I get a message on the Windows client that the connection cannot be established.
I am stuck.
