VNC Server

Hi there once more.

I'm looking for a the best VNC Server and Viewer rpm and try out. I've tried Real VNC but is not satisfying. when I follow the explanations, I cant get far on the Fedora 10 that I have. If anyone has tried it and has worked well, I'll apreciate their help. If not, where can I find the best you've used, if you have? Do i need to run the VNC server on the Windows XP platforms to access the desktops from Fedora? Am running a Fedora server in a network of Windows XP platforms.

Thanks in advance.

Can you explain what wasn't satisfying about RealVNC, and what features you are looking for?

You only need to run a server on the target computer -- clients connect to the server. [[ For example, to view a Windows desktop from Fedora, the Windows desktop would need to have the server running. In the reverse, the Fedora box would ]]
