Have a look at:

This lists the possible configuration options. I would assume that you
would need "greeter-show-remote-login=true", but it is possible that
whether or not this functionality is actually available depends on your
greeter - there are several of them out there. In addition you would
need to configure authorization.

I haven't tried this, though, as I use VNC.

There is some information available at:

This should also apply to Debian, but it only describes half of what
you want to do, and several other options for the other half. You might
still find it useful, though.

Hope this helps. Please post your results if and how you get it
working, as I would be interested to know.
