Unhappy


Hi,

I would like to access a remote unix box and display its desktop using a Linux box. At the moment I can do this using a PC running Hummingbird Exceed. Is there a Linux alternative?

Cheers,

Dave

You can use ssh to remotely login into the system and then have the X packets forwarded to your machine. You can download ssh from www.openssh.com.
