Yes I am aware that SSH proxying is not RDP. But VNC was also mentioned in the comments in this article and both have their merits. There are times for each and they are related topics, not everyone has time to find narrow scoped articles on each individual topic. I do thank you for your comments on pre-6.0 RDP. VPN was also mentioned and probably is more related. For me the advantage to VPN or RDP type technologies is when I do not wish to mix business browsing and personal browsing.
