Remote Desktop Linux?


I am running Fedora core 6 and would like to remote desktop in from work...all the machines are running XP. I see you can remote from Fedora to windows but can it be done vice versa?

The X-Window graphics system is "network transparent", so that applications and desktops can run on one computer and display on another. For a quick equivalent to Remote Desktop try either VNC software (the established standard) or FreeNX (much newer, broader functionality, not so widely adopted).

Clarification: Both VNC and NX require you to use client software. The Microsoft Terminal Services client only supports the proprietary RDP protocol.

Use VNC service on user linux machine and same in windows too.

But in this case I have to be logged on into the server linuc machine and whatever I do will be visible to everyone present out there. Is it not possible like ssh to have independent sessions like ssh.
Something that can be called Xssh

On UNIX systems you can use VNC in two ways, both of which create independent sessions.

kadhiravan.r described one - launch a VNC server from a user account. In this instance VNC uses weak password protection by default, and you can use SSH for extra protection.

The other method is to use inetd. In this configuration VNC listens on a specified TCP port, and generates new desktop sessions on demand.

FWIW, I wrote up a tutorial that explains both methods:

You can use Nomachine NX according to the instructions at http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=506684. It allows you to create a session on a linux server from a windows client that allows you to reconnect without restarting it (permanent sessions).
