Fwd: rdp access netbsd 9.2

Hello George,

  GG> I would like to configure rdp service to access nb 9.2 running in a vm.

    That's an interesting idea.  If nothing else it might be handy for people
with thin clients that "speak" RDP but not X11.

I haven't tried it but I'll look at it tonight.

    I doubt it's common to use RDP for that.  It's possible to tunnel X11 or VNC
through ssh and I've done that in the past.  Potential perks of VNC include the
ability to disconnect and reconnect at will without impacting your session,
support for low bandwidth connections and the ability to host one or more X
desktops on VNC servers that are not tied to the physical console.

Does freerdp2 use Xvnc somehow?  That surprises me.

  GG> Whatever works, I was hoping someone would share their tierce setup steps?

What's a tierce?
