Lightbulb Remote acces to my x session

Hi all,

I want to acces my linux box remotely but I don't know how.

Can you explain me how I can acces my fedora core 2 x-session from a ms-windows box?

I want to acces to my home (linux) from my work (ms-windows), is it possible?

Thanks in advance!

is your home (linux) box connected to the internet or something ? do you have a modem on it? is there allready connectivity between your two boxes???
ok if it is.. easy :P
first of all just edit your /etc/xinetd.d/telnet file and make sure that disable is no
then u can telnet to the box and use the box as if you were using a normal console box!
if you want more than that you can use VNC maybe, witch is about the same as using PC Anywhere on windows you just need to install and enable vncserver on your linux box and install tightvnc on your windows pc then you can see the remote desktop of the pc u want to see
