Remote Desktop Over Win2000


Hi all..............


I config Remote desk top (viewer) using VNC. I can view the win2000 desktop in my linux box and it is perfect.

But in other way arround , It is connecting ,but not the GUI. (Both Linux and Win using VNC Clinet/server).

It is only the terminal window with a grey background.

I want to get the GUI of linux box , via win2000. Is it not possible or any wrong with the configuration.

Any body can help me.

edit your ~/.xstartup file and change "twm" to whatever command starts your window manager or desktop environment

for kde, use startkde
for gnome, use gnome-session
