"For those of us who don't have a ton of money to throw around
for a sophisticated remote access and application server setup,
there's VNC (Virtual Network Computing). Developed by one
of AT&T's research laboratories in Europe, VNC is an open
source, Free Software product that delivers high-performance remote
console capabilities for Unix and Linux, as well as Microsoft
Windows and the Macintosh. Cool, right?"
"VNC basically has two parts -- a client application (vncviewer)
and a server application (vncserver). The server is available for
practically every variant of Unix as well as for Microsoft Windows
and MacOS. Basically, you can connect from a Linux machine to a
computer running a VNC server by using the native-compiled
vncviewer for Linux (a special KDE 2.0 version named keystone
exists as well, which is provided as part of the kdenetwork base
distribution). The VNC server also offers a built-in Java Web
interface that you can use to run applications remotely and to
display their output in Netscape."
"VNC is available directly from the VNC site at
http://www.uk.research.att. com/vnc/download.html. At the time of
this writing, the current version for Linux was 3.3.3 and the
binary distribution file was named 3.3.3r1_x86_ linux_2.0.tgz. This
contains both the VNC server and the VNC viewer for Linux. In
addition to the Linux version, you'll want to download versions of
VNC for all the platforms that you are going to control remotely,
such as Windows or another flavor of Unix."
