Public bug reported:

This is a new stable release in the GNOME 42 series

Test Case #1
Install all updates. Log out and log back in.
Open the Settings app to the Sharing page. Turn on Sharing and turn on Remote 
Desktop Sharing.
Turn it off then on because there may be a gnome-control-center bug with 
initial enabling.

From a second computer, connect to the first computer using Remmina.

The Remote Desktop page on the first computer provides the username and
password to use. I wasn't able to get the "Remote Desktop Address" to
work (maybe avahi doesn't work well?) so just use the first computer's
IP address.

So something like:
RDP jeremy@

Ensure that the connection works.

Test Case #2
Do test case #1 but this time also enable the Legacy VNC option on the Remote 
Desktop Sharing page.
Connect using VNC instead and ensure that the connection works.

What Could Go Wrong
RDP Sharing is a new feature for Ubuntu 22.04 LTS as part of GNOME 42. 
(Previously only VNC Sharing was offered.)

RDP Sharing can be used for providing remote support so it's important
that this feature works well because it may be difficult for the remote
admin to fix issues in person.

gnome-remote-desktop is part of GNOME Core and falls under the GNOME
