Remmina is a remote desktop client for POSIX-based computer operating systems. It supports the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP), VNC, NX, XDMCP, SPICE and SSH protocols.[3][4]

Remmina is in the package repositories for Debian versions 6 (Squeeze) and later and for Ubuntu versions since 10.04 (Lucid Lynx).[5][6] As of 11.04 (Natty Narwhal), it replaced tsclient as Ubuntu's default remote desktop client.[7][8] The FreeBSD ports/package collection also contains it as a separate port and additional protocol-specific plugin ports.[9]
