TightVNC Ver terminal Services.. also looking for terminal Services for linux


I want to ask some big brains some questions… At home I have been using TightVNC to get access to all my home computes… But now at work I have a little but hole IT that has block ports 5800-5900. He tells me that VNC is not good for “Security reasons” I’m looking for something that will be just as good as VNC… What I’m really looking for is something like terminal Services in Linux….. Something I can get access to X with. Something else I must ask is VNC really all that bad and terminal services (IN WINDOWS) really all that much better?????????

VNC isn't known for being the most secure...

If you only need the command line, take a look at things about ssh. A good ssh client for Windows is PuTTY.

If you need the GUI, you could tunnel VNC through a ssh, which is quite secure. If you're interested, let me know, I have a site with good instructions on how to do this somewhere in my mess of bookmarks...

Lastly, you could configure your VNC server to use a different port... might get you in trouble though

Hope this helps!

Okay...

Take a look here.

The site on that link walks you thru setting up VNC to tunnel thru a ssh session.
