Remote Desktop : Linux(Ubuntu/LinuxMint) to Windows and Windows to Linux

From Windows => Linux : Use xrdp

sudo apt-get install xrdp

The good thing, once you have xrdp running(which runs automatically after installation) you can connect to it using Microsoft Remote Desktop Client(mstsc) or VNC Viewer (RealVNC)

From Linux => Windows, Option #1 use rdesktop

sudo apt-get install rdesktop

rdesktop is a command line tool.

rdesktop -u administrator -r clipboard:PRIMARYCLIPBOARD -g 1024×768  10.107.172.103

From Linux => Windows, Option #2 Use remmina

sudo apt-get install remmina
