Ubuntu does not have remote desktop as windows, but it has vnc. But I recommend to use x2go instead of vnc, x2go is much faster than vnc especially if you are on a slow connection.

FreeNX, although somewhat dated, also deserves a look as it works quite well over WAN connections, is included with Ubuntu 9.04 and has walkthroughs for this system. – the-wabbit Dec 16 '11 at 9:12
