I am using ubuntu for development. And I want to test my application on IE. So, instead of remote desktop I want to access IE as remote application from other windows machine. So the other guy whose working on windows machine can continue with his work and I can also test my application.

Are there any ways to access IE as remote application between windows and ubuntu ?

You can use VirtualBox in Ubuntu to create Windows virtual machine

Another option if you just need ie to test your applications, is to use ie running wine for ubuntu See here.

FreeRdp just allows that. It is a bit buggy for me under Ubuntu Unity with nvidia proprietary drivers..

A couple of nice tools to set it up easily:
