    1: # NetBSD RDP/VNC survey
    2: This page aims to provide a complete list of VNC/RDP implementations which can likely be ported to NetBSD.
    3: As a further goal, documentation will be added on how to install and configure the particular implementations.

  137: ## TODO
  138: 
  139: 1. Update xrdp in wip, bring xrdp to pkgsrc.
  140: 1. Bring other RDP and VNC software to pkgsrc.
  141: 1. Check trends in NX software (I heard free package isn't going to be supported anymore).
  142: 1. Check interoperability of servers and clients for NetBSD and other desktop systems (MS Windows, MacOS X).
