I can find this article about remote desktop in Vista, but none that tells me how to remotely control my Vista machine from my Redhat machine.

Any ideas?

You can use tsclient (Terminal Server Client) which comes installed under Applications -> Internet -> Terminal Server Client. It looks very similar to Remote Desktop on Windows.

Set the protocol as RDPv5 and away you go!

See the Red Hat article on Connecting Using Terminal Server Client.

You can use LogMeIn which is free and works from a web browser. Or there is TightVNC if you want something easy I would suggest LogMeIn, works around routers what not.

xrdp has both a client and a server version. Install xrdp client, and then use it to connect to the Windows Vista terminal server.
