there are several vnc solutions that will work in linux, for eg. tightvnc.

The better way to do "remote control" imho if you dont need a GUI, is to use ssh. Putty is a realy good ssh program for windows, and all it requires from the server side is a sshd that is relatively easy to set up.

definately not.. There are numerous.. the original vnc will work, tightvnc is one of the most secure and popular ones.. There also is something called x11-vnc that mimics the windows vnc server so thatan allready running X session can be managed remotely. All the other vnc clients for X create a new X server upon remote control. Do a google with "vnc linux" and youll find what you want, but I recommend tightvnc..
