    Hi all,

    I'm clearly in well over my head, have very little Linux experience and now have two Linux based machines. I would ideally like to be able to remote from the laptop to the PC but am really struggling with this.

    I have seen suggestions about SSH Server and Remmina Client but have failed miserably to understand how to get these setup. These are probably not the best solution to what might be a very easy to issue to resolve.


    Does anyone have any guidance they could point me at or software I should consider? Or, is it probably best that I 'step away from the machines'.

    Thanks

    SSH is used for command line access. I've never user Remmina Client. You might be better with NoMachine NX. NoMachine NX is for full desktop and command line access - similar to Remote Desktop on Windows.
