I use VNC for this. Downloaded x11vnc and run on the server and then use vncviewer from www.realvnc.com for Linux as client and just connect. Really easy.

When i try to run rdesktop to another computer (Linux or WinXP) i get 'Connection refused' .
The network i have is LAN .

I tried vnc and i managed to connect when i run x11vnc to the computer i wanted to connect.
How can i have x11vnc to start at boot?

Hm, I do not really understand what you mean here but if I am guessing right you have gnutella running and want to operate it from another computer? You should be able to do that in VNC or rdesktop or anything like that.

ok i have 2 computers the first computer just sits there downloading music from gtk-gnutella so from the second computer i want to access the first computer using lets say "remote desktop connection" which gives me a full graphical interface of the first computer.but when i click on the icon for gtk-gnutella from the second computer it tells me it can not start gtk-gnutella because it is allready running which it is. But i need to be able to see it running so i can add songs to my list to download. now i dont understand why i have not got the icons at the bottom of my screen which shows all the windows that are open on the first computer i hope this makes a bit more sense.
thanks nige

I do not really know what gnutella is but if you would go to the first box and start it, you get a window up, right? And there you can add files to the download list and so on.

Now, if you go to your second computer and connect to the first one using VNC you should se *exactly* what you would see if you were sitting at the first box, that is: you would see the gnutella window and you can do whatever you want to do (you do not need to start it again, since it is already started).

I am still not sure if I have understood you right, though. So correct me if I am wrong.

I think I had some app before VNC that did the same, it does not show your current screen. Instead it lets you open a new X display and login _again_. This is not what you want, but did you try out VNC? Cause then you should connect to the current display and not create a new one.

OK Here's how you do this under SuSE 9.3:[list=1][*]Open YaST, click on Hardware[*]Select 'Graphics Cards and Monitors'[*]Click 'Change' button[*]Under 'Access Control' double click VNC.[*]Check "Allow access ..."[*]Check 'Enable password' and set a password[*]Set 'Enable View-Only' and 'Allow Multiple..' as desired[*]Check 'Enable HTTP Access'[*]Click 'Finish'[/list=1]

From here point your remote web browser at this system http://<your system IP>:5800 From here the VNC Java client will kick in, and when prompted enter the password you used in step 6. You should then see your remote desktop.

If this doesn't work for you, or you're not running SuSE, I've done the same thing useing KDE / Debian. In the KDE Control Center under 'System Administration' or 'Internet & Network' there is a selection for 'Desktop Sharing' that can be configured to do the same thing.

Good Luck -- Rich

I checked this again... I am using SuSE 9.3, and the instructions above are valid for this OS. If your version of SuSE doesn't have this feature yet then perhaps you could look for it in your KDE Control Center as KDE3.x has VNC built into the desktop. The only other work around that I can think of is if you start the program you want to monitor in a VNC session. Closing the VNCViewer doesn't terminate the session, it will keep running even though there isn't a viewer displaying. Or at least that's what it does for me.
