Question Remote Access - Can't find it on Debian 6.0 (Squeeze)


I would like to share my desktop (from my personal computer) to access it in my work, which is outside the local network. But I'm not able to find the place where I do the settings of the share.

In the last version of Debian (Lenny), in "System > Preferences > Remote Desktop" it was possible to configure the sharing (password and listening port). However, in the current stable version (Squeeze), this is no longer present.

Does anyone know where these settings are, or maybe if it was deleted from this version?

Solved: you have to use xrdp.
Debian (Gnome) comes with VINO-SERVER, that is a VNC Server.
XRDP lets you connect via Windows Remote Desktop Client, without the need for a specific VNC program.
