Remote support program


Is there a "GoToMyPC" type program for Linux to allow me to connect to a user's screen and keyboard?
I've seen something for Unix, but it was a few years ago and I can't remember what is was, or even if it was part of the OS, or an add-on program.
I support users, mostly Windows using the Citrix products. Now we are getting involved with Linux and I see the need to be able to connect to a user's session to see what he sees and be able to use the keyboard.

ssh with X tunneling doesn't solve his problem, he wants to see/control other user's session, not open a new one.

Some commercial products like hamachi (logmein) and 2x.com's stuff.
Also freenx and the other nx's.

Some chat software may work.

Two issues really. One is how to make a secure connection and the other is the remote desktop part. Some apps have both while others need two parts to work securely.

A web page with some review. http://www.techradar.com/news/softwa...clients-716346
