Thanks EDDY1,

It works in Ubuntu 11.04 beta, but there isn't "System>>Preferences>>Remote Desktop" in Fedora 15 alpha even in 'Classic GNOME with Compiz' session.

I've got remote desktop sharing working in Gnome 3 using x11vnc:
Fedora 15 example:
- Install x11vnc:
as root user
Code:
# yum install x11vnc
- Set the password:
as everyday user
Code:
$ /usr/bin/vncpasswd
-I don't need make it auto-start when the user logs, so I've logged on to remote computer via ssh and ran:
Code:
$ x11vnc -rfbauth ~/.vnc/passwd -display :0
and connected to remote computer using vnc-client.
