thin client and linux

Hello !
Can i connect a thin client to linux machine and support graphics?
Here it is configured so that thin client boots-up and it connect to the server machine(linux)
through telnet. I have given the command
$xhost +
in the server.
How can i get the desktop of the server on thin client?

You need LINUX running on your thin client to handle X Window requests. If its another OS, you have to use something like TightVNC or a similar remote desktop program.
