SSH is normally used.
If you want to run a GUI based program remotely from the Pi, using a linux machine or possibly Xming
or other Xwindow terminal client, then you can use:
open your ssh sessions with:
ssh -X <username>@<pi-address/url>
then once logged in, simply run the GUI program like this:
This will start the program running on the Pi, but the GUI will show up on you linux/Xwindow machine
and the & will cause the program to run as it's own job and return your prompt. Very effective
method and less resource intensive then running RDP/VNC on the Pi. Of course there are times when
VNC may be preferred/needed, I have found that VNC raises CPU% from 15-20% to 80-95% usage, that's a
lot of CPU time but when needed I would rather have the CPU WORK 4 ME then me haveing to do the work
and the CPU loaf around at < 25% usage.
