Best Remote Desktop Software


I am using Fedora 8 on my linux box that is behind my router. I would like to Remote Desktop into my machine from work. Can anyone recommend what free remote desktop programs work well for them? Will any of these Remote Desktop softwares allow multiple sessions to be connected at once?

I use NoMachine NX Server and Client for remote desktop. I am pretty sure it manages multitple sessions (there as a session administration utility) but I'm not 100%. It uses SSH for the connection so I had to forward port 22 to the LAN IP to get remote access.

I hope that helps!
