How to make Bastion RDP into Ubuntu

Mark Ashton 41 Reputation points

I have a Bastion host and a Linux Ubuntu VM that I installed a desktop on. I want to RDP into the Ubuntu VM with Bastion but Bastion keeps SSH'ing in. How do I configure my VM and Bastion so that Bastion RDP's into the Ubuntu VM instead of SSH?

    Thank you for your post!

    As of right now, Azure Bastion is currently only available to SSH with when it comes to Linux VMs. I was able to test this out by following our Install and configure Remote Desktop to connect to a Linux VM in Azure documentation, however, I realized this is only available with xrdp.

    If you'd like for this feature of enabling RDP via Azure Bastion into a Linux VM to be implemented, please feel free to upvote/comment on our current User Voice item.

    If you have any other questions, please let me know.
    Thank you for your time and patience throughout this issue.
