Remmina is a remote desktop software client for POSIX-based computer operating systems. It supports the RDP, VNC, NX, XDMCP, SPICE and SSH protocols.[2][3]

Remmina is in the package repositories for Debian versions 6 (Squeeze) and later and for Ubuntu versions since 10.04 (Lucid Lynx).[4][5] As of 11.04 (Natty Narwhal), it replaced tsclient as Ubuntu's default remote desktop client.[6][7] The FreeBSD ports/package collection also contains it as a separate port and additional protocol-specific plugin ports.[8]

Remmina, written in C, is a front-end of FreeRDP, a fork of rdesktop aiming at modularizing the code, addressing various issues, and implementing new features.

Remmina is available in three different packages; GTK+ application, GNOME application and the xfce panel plug-in.
