I previously had Linux installed on my chromebook so I am able to install programs that would otherwise not be possible. This was crucial in my completion of other MIS courses that required MYSQL, XAMPP, and Netbeans. There are a number of remote desktop clients available for Linux. I chose to use Remmina which is the most widely used as i’ve found in my research. When I go to connect to the VM I created, I use the RDP file that is downloaded when pressing the “Connect” button on Azure. At first, the file was not able to be read by Remmina. After more research I found that the text file that is downloaded has some protocols in it that can’t be read by the Remmina program. Now, each time I connect, I open the RDP in a text editor and delete the last line. After that, I am able to upload the RDP in Remmina and connect successfully.
