Moving windows between XServers...

Is it possible to move a window between XServers?

I have a window open locally on a machine, and I want to open it on a remote xsession without restarting or killing it. Is this possible? I want to do something similiar to Window XP's remote desktop, but I don't need the entire desktop, just one window. Thanks.

Xvnc is a good choice for accessing a single window from many locations.

x11vnc is a good choice for accessing your entire desktop from many locations.

If you are running a recent version of KDE, it has a shared desktop capability built-in.
