remote desktop from XP to RH AS r3


In the Windows world, from my XP machine I can control a Windows 2000 Terminal server remotely using Remote Desktop Connection.

What is the equivalent to this in the Linux world?
For example, using an XP machine to control (GUI) a linux (RH AS r3) server?


Thanks,
-Giles

Giles,

hello. I have install thight vnc to control PC on lan (my XP workstation remotely controlled from a Mandrake 10 laptop) as well as via internet (be carefull to redirect incoming request from the right ports to the PC you want to control).

You can download a version here: http://www.tightvnc.com/

Enjoy it,

Regards,
Vincent

Ok I have made som progress here....

Using VNC Viewer for Win32 4.0 by realvnc I am able to open a session, aftering entering the password, that shows a grey desktop with nothing on it (twm). Left clicking on the desktop I am able to select xterm and start up an xterm session.

My question is- I would like to start a session so that I get the GUI login screen (like I am at the console), in the same manner that Windows Remote Desktop Connection presents you with the login screen of the Windows server you are connecting to.
It seems that with vnc all connections are done under one user.



Thanks!
-Giles

I was looking into the same thing about a month ago. It seems that the linux version and the windows version don't work the same way. I haven't had time to see if there is another product that will allow it.
