Remote Desktop type program in linux


Is there a linux version of the WinNT Remote Desktop protocol or a similar project... Not VNC though... to slow and I want to be able to actually log into a linux box from either another linux box or a win box... Would use Telnet/Putty type setup but I want a GUI.

You can use X applications through an SSH connection from a Linux machine. Not sure about Windows though.

If you really find VNC to be too slow, try TightVNC. It uses transparent compression algorithms... Just like VNC there are both Windows and Linux client versions. The speed increase when moving to TightVNC is not extremely noticable, however.

The other option is to go with a Windows X Server, like Hummingbird Exceed. It is commercial software, and moderately expensive for personal use. Setting up a Windows X server would mean that most of the drawing would be handled by your local machine instead of being encoded and transmitted over the network (as in a Windows Remote Desktop or VNC -like solution).

Personally I'd take VNC over the Windows X Server anyday, unless I had scads of users connecting to the server this way.

I've tried Tight VNC in fact that's what comes with RedHat 8. The client is really good but the server sucks. comparatively, RealVNC Server worked 2x faster than TightVNC server...

You had a problem with the speed of VNC? I have never had any speed problems with any flavor of VNC. My only guess is that maybe it is the WM you are using with VNC.

X was designed to do much better than what you're requesting.

Set ssh X forwarding on both boxes and then run ssh <host> -X <command>

If you want to do the same thing with windows you'll need an X server to do it with. I suggest installing cygwin and use it's X server (makes things so much easier).

Thanx bahamat. to Helper_monkey, You're probably not running on a 10baseT Ethernet network are you? VNC sucks wanker over a 10baseT I have to run it with all the options set to lowest quality or pretty dern near lowest quality just to get it to even work at a semi reasonable speed.
