 ===== Usage ===== ===== Usage =====
  
-With the desktopsharing function of X2go you can have full-access the desktop from somebody else like with programs as Remote DesktopTeamViewer or LogMeInYou can see an X2go session from somebody else, but you can also see a normal desktop. +moved...
- +
-To do this you need access to port 22. So maybe you need to make a portforwarding on your router. Portforwarding is not discussed here on this page. +
- +
-==== The Server Side ==== +
- +
-First you need to install the package x2godesktopsharing on the server (the machine you want to access, this can be a very normal PC): +
- +
-<​code>​ +
-aptitude install x2godeskstopsharing +
-</​code>​ +
- +
-Then there is a new application in the menu. I can find it with "​Applications | Internet | X2go desktop sharing"​. You can start the program with this command too: +
- +
-<​code>​ +
-$ x2godesktopsharing +
-</​code>​ +
- +
-After starting the application and some searching, you will find a new icon on your panel. On the top the icon it's blue, and under it is white with a red cross in it. When you right-click on the butten you can activate the desktop sharing there. After activating other people who can login, can access your desktop. +
- +
-==== Client Side ==== +
-To connect to another user's desktop, use [[wiki:​components:​x2goclient|x2goclient]]. For installation instructions refer to the [[download:​start|download page]]. +
- +
-  * Start the client. +
- +
-Preparing the session: +
-  * Create a new session with "​session | new session..."​.  +
-  * Assign a session name. +
-  * As 'host name' give the name of the machine, the session you want to connect to, is running on. +
-  * As 'user name' give your account on the remote machine. +
-  * As '​session type' choose '​connection to local desktop'​. +
-  * Recommended:​ choose "full screen"​ on the settings tab. Otherwise, everything can become too small to read. +
-  * Press '​OK'​ to save the session. +
- +
-Making the connection:​ +
-  * Activate the newly created session. +
-  * Enter the password of your remote account, and start the session. +
-  * You'll be presented with a list of running sessions. Choose, which you want to connect to. (In most cases there will be only one session listed.) +
- +
-After this you will login on the desktop of the other user. When your monitor is smaller than the other ones, it might be a bit difficult to read. +
- +
-Be aware, that by selecting '​shutdown'​ within the shared desktop, the remote system will be turned off! +
