Default Remote Desktop

My goal is to have a Linux virtual machine that can be used remotely (VNC or RDP or ) by several users simultaneously (less than 10).

I tried ubuntu 11.10 with xrdp and x11vnc server connecting from Windows with RDP, RealVNC Viewer and TightVNC viewer, with and without SSL.

The results are disappointing.
RealVNC returns "connection refused 10061".
TightVNC returns "failed to connect to server".
RDP connect but login failed (as shown in attachment).

My questions are:
- is there a step by step tutorial for incapable?
- is there is a virtual machine ready, or from which to start?

Thank you in advance for any help.

Thank you Falko.

I came very close to the solution but I have not reached yet.

I am at the last step of this guide:

I can connect with multiple VNC session but after entering password I see black screen (as expected).

Now I should edit the file $HOME/.vnc/xstartup as described but this not solve.

My xstartup file (please see screenshot) is different from that in the example.

Leaving only
sh /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc
doesn't solve; I still see a black screen in VNC.

Any help would be appreciated.
