Terminial Services equiv for Linux?


Is there anything I can run to use the computer instead of SSH? I'd really like to use the interface.

I'd like to be able to remotely use my Linux box without running SSH. Something like Terminal Services is to Windows. The interface I refer to, is being able to use X remotely.

Or do you mean:
Is there anything I can run to use the computer instead of a shell? I'd really like to use a graphical user interface?

In which case, yes! It's called X!

I'm sorry too, I got rude for no reason really. Would you happen to know of an application I can use to do this?

How well do you want to run X remotely? You could try running VNC, but I wouldn't advocate it... it runs like, well, let's just say that it's not as responsive as setting up your X server to have a remote (network) screen as well as a local (direct monitor) screen.

X is a Server:Client program, so if you run an X server specifying to display on a remote machine, you should be ok. You might also want to look into encrypting it so that only you can access your remote X session.

Another vote for VNC. You should also take a look at the TightVNC project that's addressing some of the "bandwidth hog" problems with the ATT VNC. I've used TightVNC at work for W2K->W2K, W2K->Linux and Linux->Linux connections.
