LinuxPR: Tridia Corporation’s Open Source Virtual Network Software Views & Controls Linux Consoles

“Tridia Corporation, a provider of eSupport tools that
facilitate interactive support and remote system administration
today launched Release 2.0 of the company’s newest product
offering, TridiaVNC (virtual network computing) the first
commercially supported release of open-source, virtual network
computing software that views and controls Linux consoles.
TridiaVNC Release 2.0 will be available by the end of the year. A
prerelease binary (e.g., beta) will be available by Sept 26 on
www.tridiavnc.com. The
source code will also be available to the public from www.developvnc.org.”

“This is a breakthrough for the Linux community since many
administrative tasks under Linux can only take place if you are
physically at the console. Release 2.0 of TridiaVNC removes this
burden. You can now remotely control the Linux server from anywhere
on the network, including via the Internet. As Linux becomes more
accepted on the desktop (instead of just on the server) remote
viewing and control functionality will be critical for user support
and training.”

“One of the big drawbacks to Linux remote control was that you
COULD NOT take control of the console (the screen, keyboard and
mouse connected to the actual server),” says Vince Frese, chief
executive officer of Tridia Corporation. “This lack of direct
control has been a disappointment to many Linux users. They know
they are able to do it under Microsoft Windows, yet they can’t do
it under Linux. With Release 2.0 of TridiaVNC they can remotely
view and control Linux servers anywhere on the network.”
