It is not possible with Samba, but you might want to look into TightVNC or RealVNC...

I wouldn't recomend telnet.
Because it sends all info uncrypted so if someone sniff the connection they can get all information u send with telnet.

Use SSH, it's not just a Linux application, it's a protocol. OpenSSH
