remote access


Hi all,

As my thread choice suggests Im a bit of a newbie to Linux.

I would like to install debian on an old celeron 500mx without a gui interface command only. I would then like to remote into the box under ubuntu or XP and have Xserver and Xclient create a desktop for the debian box, as if the ubuntu box or xp box where thin clients with all services run on deb.

From looking at the cygwinX site I think that is the right program to get an Xclient under XP and I guess ubuntu already has this setup.

What I would like is for someone to let me know if this is possible and perhaps a starting point for reading.

The idea behind this is, if the deb box is less stressed by a gui (its pretty slow) there is less chance of failure. If I can then power the gui on another faster box remotely, admin via a gui is faster.

Cheers,

Gary.

Hi Gary,
Well, whatever you are trying is pretty much possible. but some comments

I don't think this would be the outcome., Because in any case you would have to have an Xserver running on the deb machine for the cygwinX to run the client on XP. So, your assumtpion that you would install a debian with no GUI, is fallacy, because Xserver is necessary for this type of setup.


[And I have no idea whether this can be done without the deb running Xserver. Do post your result in case you are able to do it .. Even I want such a setup.]
