Remote login to display framebuffer device


I hope this is not a totally ridiculous question. I use putty often to remotely connect to my laptop at home. I recently learned about the Linux framebuffer, and was curious if there was a tool like putty that would let me remotely connect to my laptop but use the /dev/fb0 device for forwarding graphics. Sort of like a vnc or X11 forwarding, but instead of using X, gdm, kdm etc. we use the framebuffer.

sorry dude
no way around it you will need to use X
every program that runs on windows to send a GUI window over a network to nix depends on X running
but you can use the framebuffer X driver
the bitch with this is there is no way to change the screen resolution you will be stuck with the boot up screen resolution
