Hello and Welcome to LinuxQuestions,

VNC is indeed an option but one that comes with various security risks of which some are pointed out in this thread post #6. As suggested by acid_kewpie, NoMachine NX is a far better solution.

Kind regards,

Eric

Talking

finally i got it working via remmina .... installed as easily as it could be using yum


and then i connected in XDMCP - X remote session and just putting my server details i got that session
dont know how it will work over wan but atleast it is solved for now ...

also for nx u have to have this running in server which can really be bit messy


thankyou every one

regards

x2go would be my recommendation

I can warmly recommend x2go. I switched over from freenx, and freenx never worked well at all and was a constant hassle.

x2go is all you wish a remote X client to be.
