Question Want to log into windows account from SuSe 9.3


I'd like to know if it's possible to log into windows account from Linux, just as it is possible from Windows to Linux account with VNC (Virtual Network Computing).

Thank you for your kindness to answer.

You can also use something like gdesktop to connect into Windows machines running Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection, meaning you don't neccessarily need VNC running on the remote machines.
