remote desktop between 2 linux pcs


Hi

I have 2 ubuntu 7.10 PCs but only one monitor, how can I remote desktop onto one from the other?

I can SSH through the terminal but I'm looking for a graphical tool

so far rdesktop doesnt seem to work either way, connection is refused, but from what I've found on google rdesktop seems to be from lin-win not lin-lin

Please advise me!

Thanks

rdesktop is an msrdp client, totally useless here. check out vnc or the closest thing to msrdp, freenx.

i have used vnc viewer by connecting redhat and ubuntu it works perfect, vnc viewer is just like net meeting but very advance and very secure.

well vnc is very very non-advanced when it comes to remote access. it just shows the screen, that's it. other things like nx use it just as one piece of a much more impressive jigsaw.

vnc viewer has given a passwd so that the selected people can take the remote. i feel it very practical.
