Remmina logoRemmina is a remote desktop client written in GTK+, aiming to be useful for system administrators and travellers, who need to work with lots of remote computers in front of either large monitors or tiny netbooks. Remmina supports multiple network protocols in an integrated and consistant user interface. Currently RDP, VNC, XDMCP and SSH are supported.

Remmina is released with three separated packages:

* "remmina", the main GTK+ application
* "remmina-gnome", the GNOME desktop applet

The Remmina main program:

* A pure GTK+ 2.0 application!
* Maintain a list of remote desktop files, organized by groups
* Make quick connections by directly putting in the server name
* Remote desktops with higher resolutions are scrollable/scalable in both window and fullscreen mode
* Viewport fullscreen mode: remote desktop automatically scrolls when the mouse moves over the screen edge.
* Floating toolbar in fullscreen mode, allows you to switch between modes, toggle keyboard grabbing, minimize, etc.
* Tabbed interface, optionally managed by groups
* Supported network protocols: RDP, VNC, XDMCP, SSH, Avahi

The Remmina panel applets:
* Support GNOME and Xfce desktop environment in separated packages
