I have a computer running in the cloud. It is using redhat. Currently I can only log into using putty/terminal. I'd like to be able to see a desktop and GUI and access the computer through a program such as remote desktop (from a windows machine). What do I need to install and configure to enable remote desktop on this computer running redhat?

You can try a remote desktop solution like NoMachine(NX) Free Edition or VNC.

Or if you want to use the windows remote desktop client, install xrdp.
