I recently switched my main computer over to Linux (from Win8), and everything is working fine, except that when I would remote into the computer from my other computer (running Win7), it was much faster when running Win8. Since I upgraded to Linux, I can connect, but the screen refreshes at a much slower rate, even over the same connection (LAN speed).

Anyone know of any settings either on the Win7 side or on the Linux server side that I can change to speed things up?

Which Linux distro are you using ? There are some distros made specifically for older machines. For example, Fedora has it's flagship distro using Gnome, but it also has 2 lighter versions one using LXDE. and the other using Xfce.

My server is running Centos 6.4 64-bit. The only thing that has changed on this computer is the OS - I had Win8.1 installed previously, but have since turned that into a VM and installed Centos in its place.

OK, I seem to have made it a little better, but still not as fast as it was when I would remote into Win8.

I sent the client side to automatically detect the connection speed. It was set for LAN (10mb+), and even though I have a full gigabit connection to the outside world (theoretical, of course), and within my own home network, it was still slowing down. I guess now it's at least accounting for network lag.
