remote accessing Windows XP from Fedora 11


System Spec:
Fedora 11 - Gnome - TigerVNC
Windows XP Pro - TightVNC

now i've installed vnc server on the windows xp and easily enough i'm remoting to it like a breeze ...my problem is, i have to login to Windows and Run the VNC Server inorder for me to be able to remote to it... although i added the VNC Server to startup programs, if the WinXP is locked (screen saver or haven't login from bootup) i can't remote to it...

1) is there a way of accessing Windows native remote tool? or is there other alternative softwares that would let me bypass this?

2) how can i enable copy and paste in both directions from Fedora 11 (at the moment i can copy and paste onto the XP Machine but can't the reverse way)

cheers for any help

Have you considered using rdesktop? Enable RDP connection in Windows and it will be there at startup.
