i found this link:

http://www.raspberryanywhere.com/

Perhaps it can be of some help. I’v been using the service from several weeks and it works great!

The link provide a simple software teamviewer like to access your raspberry board anywhere you are.
Furthermore, you can use your usual SSH client; they just provide a virtual address to connect to your board
via SSH or HTTP . It worths a try for sure!

Several months later I started researching on how to make the Pi work without a monitor and happened to stumble across your article – an absolute lifesaver! It’s very detailed and organized, perfect for a beginner, and I prefer the Remote Desktop over VNC. The Pi is up and working now! Thanks!

One must purge realvnc from the raspian jessie OS in order to use xrdp. Instructions are available on the raspberrypi.org site in the blog where vnc is discussed on the new Raspian.

Just wondering why we needed tightvncserver; also why did other articles skip that software. Anyhow for now I got what I wanted, this is some research for future… 🙂

Open Remote Desktop and type IP, Username and Password.
Done.

Let’s assume we build a webpage on the raspberry.
Can we access it from our cell phone remotely (different network) and directly using for example Chrome?

By directly I mean this way: Chrome -> pubic address/port/webpage etc.

Indirectly would be connecting to raspberry through VNC mobile app to launch desktop and then use web browser -> local network address/webpage

Thank you.

sudo apt-get install tightvncserver
sudo apt-get remove xrdp
sudo apt-get install xrdp

afterwards it works without any problems (for whatever reason…)

First, these tutorials are fantastic! thanks a lot!

So, thanks to the tutorial, the set-up of my RPI3 went well, and I have the shell working. However, I have a problem connecting the remote desktop – I see the “connecting to…sesman connected OK..login successful…” but then I get “error – problem connecting”.

my Pi is connected using both Lan and WiFi.

I saw quite a few others complaining of this, but can’t figure out what to do.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks,
Gideon

However, if I window (i.e. less than full screen) the Remote Desktop window, I cannot get the RPi GUI to rescale to “fill” the smaller window. It wants to stay full size and I have to scroll to see bits that are outside the Remote Desktop window. Any way that I can do this – that is, see the full RPi GUI in a windowed Remote Desktop?

Both Pi’s were connected to the wireless network as the macbook and iPad, but would only connect remotely if they were wired in with an ethernet cable regardless of whether the ethernet or wifi IP address was used to remote in. I cannot understand why this should be, but it makes the whole thing pointless for me since I want to remote in to the Pi so it can be a wireless robot!

Any ideas?
Thanks

I was trying to connect my rasberry pi 2 using remote desktop connection, however when I enter the user name and password on the xrdp terminal still it will lead me to the command line interface. Also I already run the command sudo raspi-config to enable to boot to gui mode, but still I’m stuck on CLI.

Please help.

Thanks,

I use to remote access RPi from my first PC, but now that I got the hang of it, I try accessing it on my 2nd PC. I usually run a monitoring program on the RPi, running 24/7, using the first PC. But when I access the RPi using my 2nd PC, I cannot see the Application that I left running when I remote access it using the first PC. I was expecting to continue my session where I left of in the first PC, since I am using the same username. How can I do this?

Is there anyway considering we know only local ip address of the pi as it will be give to the user and I don’t know anything about the Pi network. How can i get access to pi after giving to end user for any program update i want to do in secured way!
