XServer Question


Good Evening,

perhaps someone can point me to the command, or a howto to work with Xservers and Clients.

I would like to connect to an X Server from one Fedora 8 box to Another. So If I am running X, isnt there a way to connect to another Fedora 8 box and control it as if I were on it in a GUI?

Any direction or links is greatly appreciated.

there are a few options you could use. if you wanted to see exactly what is on the local screen at the time you could use VNC and connect to that session. alternatively if you are looking at using a linux box similar to Microsoft Terminal Services then you could enable remote TCP connections to the X service, and simply connect to it via an xdmcp client.


which distribution are you using?

woops, I missed your point of using Fedora 8. at the command line type "gdmsetup" as root. select the remote tab and select anything other than "remote login disabled". then go to the Security tab and remove the tick from "Deny TCP connections to Xserver"

this technically should be it. then install the tsclient package and the xnest package. you should find a terminal server client in your internet gnome menu. you should be able to type in a hostname or ip address and it should connect without any problems.
