Is RDP, RFB & spice supported?
Which & how?
Accepted Answer0Both the older xm/xend and the newer xl/xenlight toolkits support SDL, VNC, and SPICE:
The outline of SPICE support can be found here:
The Beginner's Guide covers basic VNC configuration:
and this page covers both SDL and VNC options in detail:
If you want to talk to Windows DomUs via RDP, I don't believe there is any problem doing so. You would set that up normally.
Accepted Answer0If I understand your question correctly, I think the best answer is "it depends". There are a variety of options.
For example, check out this page about VNC:
Note that it cites two methods to run VNC: One through the Control Domain, and another through the use of conventional VNC servers on each Guest VM.
As far as I know, Xen Project does nothing to facilitate RDP, but does nothing to block it either.
So, you install whatever RDP software you need on your guest VM's OS and then access it using an RDP client.
You can find information any number of places, including:
Just find a tutorial for RDP which uses the operating systems you need and follow it. It should work, as far as I know.
