RDP connections to HP-UX

Hi everybody,
I would like to find out. Can i use RDP connection to connect HP-UX(runs on rx6600)? Which different will be between RDP and putty\Xwindows\iLO? I mean can i get some advantage by using RDP?
These days i use putty and X Windows and things are well.

Regards,
Rustam

Re: RDP connections to HP-UX

What is "RDP"? Windows Remote Desktop? (Is
HP-UX Windows?)

It should keep you away from the HP-UX
system.

So, is there some actual problem which you
are trying to solve, or are you just looking
for trouble?

A Google search for keywords like, say;

hp-ux rdp

might find some products which might do what
you want, depending on exactly what that
might be. What's your budget?

Steven Schweda,
Thanks for answer.

I use X windows and i dont need to RDP. But one specialist want to configure something via VPN and asks me RDP access. I explained him
isnt putty\x windows\iLo ok for you. But he wants RDP. Maybe he doesnt know these softwares and want just RDP connection.
I use cygwin and there is no problem.
I just wonder why he want RDP

Ask him? I'd guess that a Windows user would
normally use Remote Desktop to access a
remote Windows system. That does not make it
the best choice when the remote system runs
HP-UX (or anything else other than Windows).
