Remote Connect & Administration

I'm looking for a program that will allow a remote computer (running windows) to connect to my linux computer and be able to view the screen (and control it if possible)
Something similar to Radmin or micr0s0ft's remote assistance crap.

One possibility is VNC. There is a lot of info on this technology on the web, and it can be viewed with its own client (which runs in windows, PDA's and Linux), or even through a Java web client. You can also run a VNCServer on windows too, thus unifying a system. Another thing to think about are ICA (Citrix) apps.

You should probably not allow VNC's connections directly through a firewall and block its ports (you wouldnt leave windows RA ports open to the internet would you? Theres a scary thought), and require that an admin/helpdesk person ssh in with a tunnel to connect to it for security.
