I am looking to remote into my linux machine (Mint), more specifically the gui. Ethernet or VPN to the machine is already established. I use the wake on lan function to boot the machine up and the next step is to login. The machine I’m connecting from is running Windows 10.
So far I have tried xrdp which does the job sort of but lacking a major feature - logging in, to my understanding the user has to be already logged in for the connection te be established. I don’t want to have autologin enabled on the server machine.
By looking on forum for solutions I came across vnc solutions but never gotten to really testing any because each time I install and run one they seem to take over the .Xauthority file and I end up with and login loop after restarting.
Last resort would be to build a PI KVM.
