Re: [PLUG] Remote access to Gnome or KDE

Yes, I got several good answers.  I'm using x11vnc which works very well.   
tightvncserver also worked well, but opened a different x11 session on my 
remote computer instead of echoing what was on the screen.

xdmcp also worked for me, but seemed a little more "cludgy".
