well in the *nix world there is rlogin but in windows you would have to use other means to accomplish this.. you can look into putty, which is capable of using rlogin, ssh and telnet.. just be sure your linux box your connecting to accepts one of these.

*also, however if you setup telnet to login remotely from a windows machine, remember this is unsecure and and I would recommend ssh over all of these methods.

I have used VNC (a free program) between a W2K client and 2 NT4 servers - I believe that this is also supported on *nix. It would be worth doing a search on Google The first couple of returns should be just what you are after - remember to install install on both machines, otherwise you will be remotely controlling nothing!

I tried downloading VNC for linux and when I execute the VNC Server icon, it just opens a tiny box that says VNC Server and white space for me to type something below.

What is the easiest way to setup VNC on linux box and view it from windows pc?

You need to install on the linux box and the windows box. The windows box needs to be set up as the slave and the linux as the master. Not sure of how the terminology goes as it has been a while since I've needed to download it and then only for windows.

Check the site for instructions.

ok i've installed the linux version and start the vnc service by running "vncserver" in the console. Everything starts fine.

Next, I have the VNC Webmin module installed and it tells me that there is no service running for port 5901. I have also tried to connect through the Windows VNC and it tells me it could not connect.

When I do nmap command on linux box I dont see any ports that are listening for VNC.

looks like the problem is fixed.

I removed the vnc package and reinstalled the rpm. Now when i do nmap -sT -O localhost, it shows the VNC ports.

I can connect to it too.
