I am wondering what solutions you have found for connecting from a low-res machine to a high-res machine via vnc or nx? It seems that, in the case of nx for example, that there is a minimum resolution from which you can connect and have the server's full desktop appear in your session. For instance: connecting to a 1680x1050 server from an 800x600 client, the 1680x1050 res is used in the 800x600 nx session window (just a small part of the screen is displayed); if you increase the nx client res to 1024x768, the session is presented in 1024x768 and the entire server's screen is displayed.
Any ideas? Is there an win rdp-like solution that will always use the res of the client, disregarding any server settings?
I guess this question should really be phrased, ' how do you deal with remote access situation in which the client's requested resolution is not honored, for whatever reason' <-- read: i don't know the reason (probably something like 'server resolution could not be compressed/translated to what the client asked for')
This situation is particularly relevant to netbooks; I know I'm not the only admin that uses an eee pc or the like to remote into a server to restart cupsd or whatever, from the pub or any other place that's not my desk
Thanks for your help.
