I've been assigned a new task to perform a trade study on remote Desktop (Application) sharing and was wondering what you folks thought of the different remote sharing products that work for Linux. Most products are Windows based, but a few will manage to work with both Linux and Windows. Currently I have these products I am using, but I'm having a difficult time locating a product that will share a particular application, either on a Linux or Windows or even Mac O/S for that matter. Does anyone have any thoughts as to a rather simplified version of any of these products, where the idea is to broadcast a single application with a specific passcode generated for a group of client users (encrypted) and the client user sees a list of shared applications, selects the application and enters the passcode to view the shared application with in an intranet and perhaps have the ability to review/Markup/edit the application ? Here is my list of products that I am currently working with that are NOT web subscription based. You can google any one of these to get more information.

TightVNC Projector/Receiver
UltraVNC Server/Viewer (while using WineHQ)
Radmin Server/Viewer (while using WineHQ)
NetOp Remote Control (Instruct/Attendee)
Exceed OnDemand (Hummingbird)
Acrobat Connect Pro
FreeNX (NoMachine)

Thanks for any information
